LANDING ROLES IN TV AND FILMS
The first major project she worked on was the TV movie “The Seekers,” released in 1979. From that point on, Burke kept getting minor roles in TV movies and shows like “Rooster” and “Filthy Rich.” In 1980, She also portrayed the role of the second Bonnie Sue Chisholm in "The Chisholms," a CBS western miniseries. But it wasn’t until 1986 that Burke became a relevant person in the entertainment industry.
She brought Suzanne Sugarbaker to life in the late 80s show “Designing Women” and then worked in “Delta” wherein she was the main star.
