WATCH: A glorious “Designing Women” table read that includes Jean Smart, Annie Potts, Kyra Sedgwick and Leslie Jordan!
This is just everything.
Original cast members and a few new friends have reunited for a reading of the Designing Women pilot episode. Jean Smart (Charlene Frazier-Stillfield), Annie Potts (Mary Jo Shively), Sheryl Lee Ralph (now as Mrs. Sundemeyer) and Scott Bakula (Ted Shively) were joined by Leslie Jordan as Ray Don Simpson, Wendi McLendon Covey in the role of Suzanne Sugarbaker and Kyra Sedgwick as Julia Sugarbaker.
The cast and friends came together for a special charity table read to raise money and awareness for Color of Change, the nation’s largest online racial justice organization, and World Central Kitchen’s COVID-19 relief efforts to get fresh, nourishing meals to responders working on the frontlines and vulnerable communities across the country. Fans can directly support relief efforts by donating to the “Designing Women” fund here: World Central Kitchen:
The second video is also must-see. TV Guide’s Jim Halterman moderates a conversation with the glorious Annie Potts and Jean Smart ands series creator and writer Linda Bloodworth-Thomason. I love the show so very much and really did savor these videos.
