TNT greenlights ‘Dallas’ to series

Revival of longtime CBS hit gets 10-episode order

TNT has greenlit the revival of former CBS hit “Dallas” to series with a 10-episode order, set to premiere next summer.

Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo and Brenda Strong star in the new “Dallas,” which will also feature appearances from original cast members Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray and Larry Hagman.

The cabler will air a sneak peek of the skein Monday during the season premieres of returning hits “The Closer” and “Rizzoli & Isles.”

Cynthia Cidre (“The Mambo Kings,” “Cane”) wrote the pilot and is exec producing the series (created by David Jacobs) for Warner Horizon TV. Michael M. Robin (“The Closer”) directed and was also exec producer on the pilot.

“TNT has explored the possibility of an updated version of ‘Dallas’ for several years, but it wasn’t until we read Cynthia Cidre’s outstanding pilot script that we knew we had the foundation for a great new series,” said TNT, TBS and TCM programming exec VP Michael Wright. “It is incredibly exciting to see both new and familiar characters in the hands of a dream cast under the guidance of the enormously talented Cidre and Mike Robin.”

“Dallas” originally aired on CBS from 1978-91.

In the new version, Henderson plays the son of Hagman’s J.R. Ewing and Gray’s Sue Ellen, while Metcalf plays his cousin, the son of Duffy’s Bobby. Strong plays Bobby’s wife.
