File: Dallas TV Show
Dallas is an American prime time television soap opera.
The series is a continuation of the original series of the same name that aired on CBS from 1978 to 1991 (though it ignores the events of the TV movies Dallas: J.R. Returns (1996) and Dallas: War of the Ewings (1998)). It includes several actors/characters from the original series, and focuses mainly on John Ross Ewing III and Christopher Ewing, the adult sons of Ewing brothers J. R. and Bobby, respectively, and their relationship with their fathers.
The series is 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 is screened on Channel 5 from 5 September 2012. In Canada, the series airs on Bravo. In Australia, the series will air on the Nine Network.
Advanced screening reviews of the series were generally positive from critics on Metacritic.
On June 29, 2012, TNT renewed Dallas for a second season consisting of 15 episodes, slated to premiere in January 2013.
The series revolves around the Ewings, a wealthy Dallas family in the oil and cattle-ranching industries. It focuses mainly on John Ross Ewing III (Josh Henderson), the son of J.R. (Larry Hagman) and Sue Ellen Ewing (Linda Gray); and Christopher Ewing (Jesse Metcalfe), the adopted son of Bobby (Patrick Duffy) 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). 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), thereby eschewing the oil business. However John Ross is determined to resurrect the Ewings' former position in the oil industry.
Alongside John Ross and Christopher, original series characters Bobby, J. R. and Sue Ellen return in full capacity for the new series. Additional familiar characters, including J. R. and Bobby's niece Lucy Ewing Cooper (Charlene Tilton), their half brother Ray Krebbs (Steve Kanaly), and Ewing family rival Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval) appear as guest stars.
New main characters include Bobby's wife, Ann (Brenda Strong); Christopher's wife Rebecca (Julie Gonzalo); and Elena Ramos (Jordana Brewster), the daughter of the Ewing family cook, caught in a love triangle with Christopher and John Ross.
The new series is a continuation of the old series following a 20-year break, during which the characters and their relationships continued unseen until today. It does not take the events of the TV movies Dallas: J.R. Returns or Dallas: War of the Ewings into context. Instead, we find the characters having evolved over the last 20 years. Cynthia Cidre, show developer, has confirmed that the new series does not pick up from where the TV movies left off because the movies had tried to resolve lingering plotlines in two hours. It continues from the events of the 14th season, their development and consequences extrapolated to 2012.
