CBS pilots course in Carter’s ‘Honor’

Former “Designing Women” star Dixie Carter will headline a new CBS comedy pilot, to be produced under the actress’s newly formed Little Lamb Prods. banner in association with Twentieth TV.

The sitcom, tentatively titled “Her Honor,” will be considered for midseason ’95, reuniting Carter with Pam Norris — an exec producer on “Designing Women” for several seasons — and her partner, Paul Clay.

Norris and Clay, who’ll develop the series, have an overall arrangement at Twentieth and will exec produce along with Carter.

In addition to the pilot, Little Lamb is independently developing other projects and will produce Carter’s sequel to the MCA/Universal video “Dixie Carter’s Unworkout.” Steve Silas andMichael Feuerlein have been named exec veepee and VP of development, respectively, for the new company. Both worked previously on the video and will hold producer credits on “Her Honor.”

Little Lamb has also optioned “The Lon Perry Story,” based on the “gentleman bandit,” for development as a TV movie and is working on a 90-minute special version of “Mark Twain Tonight,” the one-man show starring Carter’s husband, Hal Holbrook.

“Designing Women” ran on CBS from 1986-93. Two of the show’s former stars, Annie Potts and Meshach Taylor, are currently featured in the CBS sitcoms “Love & War” and “Dave’s World,” respectively, while Delta Burke is mulling another series project for the Eye network.

Carter will also appear in the CBS miniseries “The Gambler V,” starring Kenny Rogers, which will air in May.
