Designing Women - Could Season 1 Come to DVD at Long Last? Wal-Mart Says So!

Pre-order listing at gives a late May date for the long-awaited release

Posted by David Lambert
We've reported time and time and time again, back in the 2005-2006 era, that Designing Women - Season 1 is coming to DVD. Sony's never announced it on their official schedule, though, and fans have been left waiting. Could there finally be a light at the end of the tunnel?

Sony STILL hasn't said anything...we're still waiting to get word about the TV-DVD titles they'll release in April, as far as it goes. But a listing found at says that Designing Women - Season 1 is coming out on May 26th. On the left side they clearing indicate that they mean this TV show, with their mention that this is "Starring: Dixie Carter, Delta Burke, Annie Potts, Jean Smart, Meshach Taylor, Alice Ghostley." They also give a list price of $44.99, for 510 minutes running time. Audio is English. No cover art or other info is provided, except for a mention of "widescreen" next to the title and further down with the spec listing (probably a listing set-up mistake; it ought to be full screen).

Could it be accurate info? We honestly have no reason to doubt it, but we'll have to wait on the studio announcement to be sure. Could it be a Wal-Mart exclusive? Maybe, but the listing there doesn't mention it (and they usually would). Stay tuned, and we'll update you when we find out more! In the meantime, we're putting it on our schedule here for now. Our thanks to reader Anthony D'Alfonso for the heads-up. Here's the studio description, passed on from the Wal-Mart listing:
    "Designing Women" focuses on sisters Julia Sugarbaker (Dixie Carter) and Suzanne Sugarbaker (Delta Burke) who despite being opposites, run a business together. Julia is an elegant, outspoken liberal intellectual; Suzanne is a rich, flashy, often self-centered former beauty queen. Together they have launched Sugarbaker Designs, an interior design firm which Julia manages while Suzanne (mostly a financial backer) simply hangs around and annoys everyone under the guise of being the firm's salesperson. Rounding out the "Women" is the pragmatic designer Mary Jo Shively (Annie Potts), and the sweet-natured but somewhat ditzy office manager Charlene Frazier-Stillfield (Jean Smart). Bernice Clifton, an absent-minded friend of the Sugarbaker sisters' mother played by Alice Ghostley, also appeared frequently.
