Several years after vowing that she would never work with Linda Bloodworth-Thomason and Harry Thomason, Delta Burke reunited with the team that made her famous on Designing Women for this semi-sequel.
After the death of her Congressman husband, Ray, Suzanne Sugarbaker moved to Washington to fill his seat in The House of Representatives as favor for the governor. On the way, Suzanne drags her mentally retarded brother, Jim; adopted daughter, Desiree; and her maid Sapphire Jones along for the ride. Working under her were three very different women; the first, Natalie Hollingsworth, Administrative Assistant, was an uptight working woman determined to make it to the top despite the fact that she was having an affair with a imprisoned married Congressman. Second, was Sissy Emerson, Press Secretary, a former staff writer for the Washington Post whose life had gone downhill after she began drinking. And lastly her secretary, Jennifer Malone, a frail housewife, whose philandering husband, an assistant coach for the Washington Redskins, ran off with a interpretive halftime dancer. Later, working in the office was a new intern/secretary, Veda Walkman, (who replaced the Malone character), a girl just out of high school who constantly annoyed the rest of the women with her "Generation X" perspective. Also working in the office was Dave, an office assistant who was always seen in the background from episode 3 on, but rarely had speaking lines or was credited. Also mainly in the background was Adam, another office assistant.
