DALLAS - 1978

Dallas is an American prime time television soap opera that revolves around the Ewings, a wealthy Texas family in the oil and cattle-ranching industries. The series is a continuation of the original series of the same name that aired on CBS from 1978 to 1991, and is not a reboot. It includes several actors/characters from the original series, though it will focus mainly around John Ross Ewing III and Christopher Ewing, the now-adult sons of Ewing brothers J.R. and Bobby, respectively.

The series is being made for TNT, sister company to Warner Bros. Television, which has owned the original series since its purchase of Lorimar Productions (the original show's production company) in 1989. On July 8, 2011, after viewing the completed pilot episode, TNT gave a greenlight for the series with a 10-episode order, which premiered on June 13, 2012. In the UK, Dallas will be screened on Channel 5. In Canada, the series will be aired on Bravo at 9 pm Eastern, 6 pm Pacific and repeated three hours later at midnight Eastern, 9 pm Pacific.

The series revolves around the Ewings, a wealthy Dallas family in the oil and cattle-ranching industries. It will focus mainly on John Ross Ewing III, the son of J.R. and Sue Ellen Ewing; and Christopher Ewing, the adopted son of Bobby Ewing and Pam Ewing. Both John Ross and Christopher were born during the original series' run and were featured in it as children (played by different actors not returning for this series). Now grown, John Ross has become almost a carbon copy of his father, bent on oil, money and greed. Christopher, meanwhile, has become a lot like Bobby, in that he is more interested in the upkeep of Southfork Ranch, much like his father and his late grandmother, Miss Ellie. As an additional point of contention, Christopher is also becoming a player in alternative energy methane clathrate recovery.

Besides Bobby, J. R. and Sue Ellen, other familiar characters including Lucy Ewing (J. R. and Bobby's niece) and Ray Krebbs (J. R. and Bobby's half brother), will also return. Ken Kercheval, who played J. R.'s nemesis Cliff Barnes, is also set to guest star in a multi-episode arc in the upcoming series. New characters include Bobby's new wife, Ann Ewing (played by Desperate Housewives actress Brenda Strong).
