The folks over at TNT are certainly excited about the new Dallas and they want you to get excited as well. As you’ve no doubt heard, TNT has ordered 10 episodes of the TV series. They shot the pilot earlier this year and are currently shooting the rest.
The new Dallas revolves around the “next generation” of Ewings (Josh Henderson and Jesse Metcalfe) but doesn’t forget about the original Southfork power players (Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, and Linda Gray). Others in the series cast include: Jordana Brewster, Brenda Strong, Julie Gonzalo, and Marlene Forte.
Though we haven’t seen any footage of them yet, original Dallas castmembers Steve Kanaly, Charlene Tilton, and Ken Kercheval are slated to appear in various capacities. The new Dallas will debut sometime next summer on TNT.
Here’s the new trailer:
What do you think? Does this change your opinion about the new series? Will you give it a try or is it just another bad remake?
