Filthy Rich and Homeless - Designing Women - Netflix
Filthy Rich paved the way for one of CBS's most successful TV series of the late '80s: Designing Women. “I'd worked with Dixie and Delta on Filthy Rich”, Bloodworth revealed in a 1986 interview. “We've had a secret plot since then to work together again.” Bloodworth created the roles of Julia and Suzanne Sugarbaker for Carter and Burke (Burke referred to her Filthy Rich character as “Suzanne in the Beginning;” and Carter's Julia, with her self-righteous, long-winded monologues had more than a bit in common with Carlotta) and numerous one-liners were recycled along with a “hog hat” prop which was prominently featured in episodes of both series. Filthy Rich stars Nedra Volz and Charles Frank each guest-starred on Designing Women, as did guest-stars Tracey Walter, William Utay, Davis Roberts and John Petlock, and E. Jack Kaplan penned an early episode. Additionally, Charles Frank reunited with Burke for an episode of the short-lived Designing Women spin-off Women of the House.
