"One of the Greatest TV Shows Comes Back After 21 Years And Is A Hit Again"
on September 28, 2012
During the summer of 2012 cable's TNT aired "Dallas", not repeats, but a new series that is a continuation of the original CBS soap opera that ran from 1978-1991. People didn't know if the serial was going to be a hit or not as many believe (stupidly) that scripted dramas are a wave of the past and something viewers don't want to watch. "Dallas" became the highest-rated drama of 2012 beating even network shows and proved the timeless story of good vs. evil in a tight-knit Texas family who backstabs each other is still relevant today.
With three of the original cast members included (Linda Gray, Patrick Duffy and most deliciously Larry Hagman as J.R.) along with a bunch of newcomers playing the sons of Bobby and J.R. (stud Jesse Metcalf (of "Passions" fame) as Christopher and Josh Henderson as John Ross, with excellent writing and direction, not to mention that timeless opening theme and music "Dallas" became the must-see TV event of 2012. TNT already has ordered 15 more shows for the summer of 2013 signalling their faith in the series.
This set will include all 10 episodes along with a slew of bonus material including "Southfork legacy: Making of Dallas-Season 1" where the cast and creators discuss having "Dallas" come back, "Back in Production" where both J.R.'s (Larry Hagman and Josh Henderson) give a tour of the first day of filming, deleted scenes, pilot commentary with writer and executive producer Cynthia Cidre and executive producer and director Michael Robin and much more.
"Dallas" it is so nice to have you back!!!!!
Of special note Steve Kanaly, Charlene Tilton and Ken Kercehevel also return this year.
