Designing Women on ‘Designing Women’ — A Mini-Reunion

Throw Back TV hosted a wonderful script reading of the Designing Women pilot, and then followed it up with a 23-minute, moderated chat featuring series stars Jean Smart and Annie Potts and creator Linda Bloodworth-Thomason.

The table read was to raise money for Color of Change and World Central Kitchen, and featured original cast members Jean Smart, Annie Potts, Sheryl Lee Ralph and Scott Bakula, with newcomers Leslie Jordan, Kyra Sedgwick and Wendi McLendon Covey.

Kyra really nailed Julia Sugarbaker, one of TV's most iconic roles (RIP Dixie Carter), and Jean dedicated it to the show's late greats, Alice Ghostley, Meshach Taylor and "the incomparable Dixie Carter."
