The ladies of Sugarbaker & Associates are headed to streaming for the first time, with all seven seasons of the iconic CBS comedy series “Designing Women” to be available on Hulu starting Monday, Aug. 26.
The streamer announced that it acquired the rights through a deal with Sony Pictures Television, and set the show’s premiere for Women’s Equality Day.
“The iconic, trailblazing comedy, which ran on CBS from 1986-1993, follows outspoken owner Julia Sugarbaker (Dixie Carter) as she runs a design firm out of her Atlanta home along with her self-absorbed, ex-beauty queen sister, Suzanne (Delta Burke), divorced sassy mother Mary Jo (Annie Potts) and naive country girl Charlene (Jean Smart),” Hulu notes in its announcement. “The feminist, feisty, females discuss everything going on in their lives, from sex and love to politics and religion, all in the confines of their Victorian Georgian office. Ex-con handyman and token male of the series Anthony Bouvier (Meshach Taylor) offers his help not only at the firm, but also offers his opinions on all of the ladies’ personal matters.”
All 163 episodes of the series will be available on Hulu.
