    ABC has handed out a script commitment to Designing Women creator Linda Bloodworth Thomason's proposed sequel to her hit CBS sitcom, which ended 25 years ago. She'll be joined by her husband, Harry Thomason, who'll return as executive producer. According to The Hollywood Reporter, "the new Designing Women — which is a multicamera comedy like its predecessor — will follow the next generation of Sugarbakers with a crop of new, young, female designers at an Atlanta interior design firm. The new take will still have the same razor-sharp dialogue and ability to cut through the political, cultural and social factions that rarely agree on anything."
