The Bloodworth Bunch: Southern Charmers
Television producer, writer and creator, Linda Bloodworth Thomason has penned over 350 comedic episodes, and in the process has earned a reputation as the voice of smart, Southern humor on television. From the legendary Sugarbaker women of Atlanta to the critically lauded small-town characters of Evening Shade to the darkly hilarious political comedy Hearts Afire, Bloodworth Thomason and team have fearlessly tackled misogyny, racism, political correctness, domestic violence, mental illness, AIDS, homophobia, elitism and regionalism, while delivering it all with smart, sophisticated, Southern humor. Join an expansive conversation on these series, how each one was created and how they attracted some of the most prestigious cast members ever to be assembled for television. Bloodworth Thomason, director Harry Thomason, former CBS president, Jeff Sagansky and primary cast members host an extensive discussion of their series, their common themes and their cultural and social impact.
