Outspoken feminist Julia Sugarbaker runs a design firm out of her Atlanta home, along with her shallow ex-beauty queen sister, Suzanne, divorced mother Mary Jo, and, naive country girl Charlene.

After being a very successful ensemble player on Saturday Night Live; Jan Hooks followed up that major success with this slight one; playing one of the supporting characters on Designing Women for two years. After that she did a couple parts here and there, and then dropped out of showbiz altogether; before dying relatively young in 2014. Tina Fey spoke out about Jan Hooks at the time; about the tragedy of her potential not being realized:' "It made me sad when she passed, and it made me mad at the time how available she was," Fey said. "Jan should have had a bigger career. Jan deserved a big movie career. Certainly as big as Rob Schneider's fucking career. She was a bigger star on S.N.L."' See more »
In several episodes the characters reference going to the fast-food restaurant Carl's Jr. There are no Carl's Jr. restaurants in the Southeast. In this region they have always been Hardee's. See more »
I asked this Northern woman, "Where are ya'll from?" And she said, "I'm from a place where we don't end our sentences with prepositions." So I said, "Okay, where are ya'll from, bitch?"

Nothing is so sad as to see good performers wasted. There were times that this show was actually funny. The problem was that the producers Bloodworth-Thomas's, were so far liberal that they were about to fall off the face of this earth. And there is nothing wrong with that, i mean they are entiteled to their own opinion, but don't take your opinion and flaunt it on a sitcom. And they treated their opinions as facts on this show. It was fact that everyone LOVED Bill Clinton, or that everyone HATED coats made out of fur. And then, such as in the episode about fur, they became so dramatic at the end, about the poor animals theat were killed! You could hear the blood running from the hearts. And to do this on a SITCOM!!!! It was a sitcom, I didn't want to be preached, or listen to a half-hour campaign, I wanted to laugh! If you are going to do this, then you need to keep an open mind. I used to like this when I was younger, but now, I get so frustrated everytime I see it. I'll stick with The Golden Girls!
