‘Designing Women’ TV Revival in the Works

Designing Women is plotting a return to the small screen!

The project has been in the works for months as the indie studio searches for a home for its revival of the comedy about four women (and one man) working together at an interior designing firm in Atlanta.

Dixie Carter, Delta Burke, Annie Potts, Jean Smart and Meshach Taylor starred on the original series, which took on subjects including women’s rights, domestic abuse, homophobia and racism during its run from 1986-1993.

Toward the end of its run, the series underwent some major casting changes. Julia Duffy and Jan Hooks replaced Burke and Smart in season six after Burke was fired from the show in a vote left to the cast after going public with complaints about producers, while Smart opted to exit of her own accord.

Excited for the return of another TV classic sitcom?
