For many, the television landscape has felt like a bland, barren wasteland since the demise of the long-running sitcom Designing Women (1986-93) and its acerbic leading lady Julia Sugarbaker (unforgettably played by the late Dixie Carter), but here’s some great news: sheee’s back!

With the aid of Topher Payne, who portrays Sugarbaker in the stage production Designing Women Live, Julia is back in business.
