“Designing Women”

Remember this show? “Designing Women” was a CBS show about four Southern women who were running an interior design firm in Atlanta. Just a year after the show started running in 1986, they aired an AIDS episode. And surprisingly it featured actor Tony Goldwyn, who many of us now know as President Fitzgerald Grant from “Scandal.” In this 1987 episode, Tony played a character named Kendall Dobbs, a young man dying of AIDS who asked the four women to design his funeral.
