Trivia

This show was originally scheduled to air on CBS on August 25, 1995. Pivotal to the plot, the episode ends with a minute-long montage of various women being abused and murdered, which the network censors announced they were going to remove, but series creator Linda Bloodworth-Thomason staunchly refused to let them air the show without it. As a result, the Lifetime network, which at the time held the exclusive syndication rights to sister show Designing Women (1986), ultimately aired the show uncut in a marathon along with a rerun of "Men Are Good" and the remaining episodes that CBS hadn't aired. The marathon was hosted by Delta Burke (who appeared on-location during the filming of the movie Maternal Instincts (1996)), and it concluded with an exclusive interview with Bloodworth-Thomason.

Quotes

Deidre Hall: It seems to me that in films today if a man gets killed, it's in the line of duty; if a woman gets killed, it's in her underwear.
