Women of the House COMPLETE S01
Suzanne Sugarbaker of Designing Women (1986) rocks the U.S. Capitol when she takes over her recently-deceased husband’s seat in Congress.
Suzanne Sugarbaker goes to Washington, D.C., to fill the congressional seat of her late husband, Ray, as a favor to the governor. To help her feel more at home, Suzanne brings along Jim, her mentally challenged brother, and her adopted daughter, Desiree. Her staff is a diverse bunch: uptight and brittle administrative assistant Natalie Hollingsworth, press secretary (and recovering alcoholic) Sissy Emerson and Jennifer Malone, a fragile housewife trying to recover from being abandoned by her husband. Later, new intern Veda Walkman joins the team.
