The Sugarbaker and Associates crew are making their return to the small screen after a 25-year (!) hiatus.
That’s right, series creator Linda Bloodworth-Thomason is currently developing a revival to Designing Women, which ran for seven seasons on CBS. Although Sony Pictures Television Studios is already on board, the reboot is still looking for a network to call home. (May the odds be ever in your favor, Netflix, Hulu, HBO, et al.)
Designing Women premiered in 1986 and starred Dixie Carter (Julia Sugarbaker), Delta Burke (Suzanne Sugarbaker), Annie Potts (Mary Jo Shively), Jean Smart (Charlene Frazier Stillfield) and Meshach Taylor (Anthony Bouvier). It followed four women (plus one man) working together at Sugarbaker and Associates, a fictional interior design firm in Atlanta.
No word on casting or a premiere date, but, hey, we’ll take what we can get.
