Designing Women Sequel Lands at ABC

.....ABC is rolling out the red carpet — or at least hanging up the red drapes — for the Designing Women. A sequel of the Emmy Award-winning comedy, which ran from 1986 to 1993 on CBS, has received a script commitment from the Alphabet Network, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Original series creator Linda Bloodworth Thomason and executive producer Harry Thomason are behind the new multi-cam series, which will “follow the next generation of Sugarbakers with a crop of new, young, female designers at an Atlanta interior design firm.”

“I’m very excited to be working with ABC,” Bloodworth Thomason tells THR. “And Sony has always been a great partner for Designing Women. Normally, I’m not a fan of reboots, but Designing Women does seem to have the right fengshui for all that is going on right now. We could definitely have some fun.”

The original Designing Women cast included (at various intervals) Dixie Carter, Annie Potts, Meshach Taylor, Jean Smart, Delta Burke, Jan Hooks, Julia Duffy and Judith Ivey. According to the report, several classic characters will make occasional appearances in the event that ABC orders the sequel to series. Unfortunately, a few of the original cast members have since passed away — Carter in 2010, then Hooks and Taylor in 2014.



the sequel................is happening...........?!

On the contrary, I think we should have more Iron Shiek!

It was a snoozer the first time around....I don't expect it to be any better the second time. Sort of like "Fuller House" wasn't...

Ehhh… with the original cast it wasn't bad for the period, particularly since at that point they seemed to have a writer or two on staff who had actually visited the South. As the series progressed it devolved rather obviously into hokey, outdated stereotyping that The Dukes of Hazzard would have been ashamed to film, so by the end it was "must-miss" TV for me too.



Lie to me if you must, but don't lie to me and insult my intelligence in the same sentence.
