Trivia

Before the series aired, a commercial featured one of the cast members showing Burke how to hold a tray to wait tables. Burke gets irritated and questions why she should have to carry trays if she's the star of the show. Her fellow cast member says, "But Delta, what if this show doesn't make it?" Burke thinks for a moment and then continues with the lesson. The joke proved prophetic, the show was cancelled after one season. See more »

A Good TV Series to Rid Delta Burke of Suzanne Sugarbaker
22 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

The main reason Delta Burke did this TV Series was to rid her of her role as Suzanne Sugarbaker on "Designing Women" where her contract was not renewed for the 1991-1992 season. This show showed us a different side of her. Delta Bishop was a country singer. Suzanne Sugarbaker couldn't sing - at all, as Julia said on "Designing Women". Though it lasted one season, the show made an impact on her career. In 1995, she did star as Suzanne again in the short-lived comedy "Women of the House".
