Battle for Energy, Power, Love and Money Rages Again as TNT Starts Production on New Series "Dallas"

TNT began production this week on the first season of the eagerly anticipated new series Dallas, from Warner Horizon Television. J.R., Bobby and Sue Ellen Ewing are all back at Southfork, with plenty of secrets, schemes and betrayals in mind. This time, they're joined by the next generation of Ewings, who take ambition and deception to a new level. The battle for power, love and the control of Southfork will erupt again when TNT premieres the new Dallas next summer.

TNT's Dallas stars Josh Henderson (Desperate Housewives) as J.R. Ewing and Sue Ellen Ewing's son, John Ross, who is determined to undermine his grandmother's legacy by drilling for oil on Ewing land. Jesse Metcalfe (John Tucker Must Die) is Christopher, Bobby's adopted son, who hopes to take the family business in the new direction of alternative energy sources. Jordana Brewster (The Fast and the Furious movies) plays Elena Ramos, John Ross' girlfriend and Christopher's former love. Julie Gonzalo (Veronica Mars) is Rebecca Sutter, Christopher's fiancée, who is trying to find her place in the vast Ewing family tree. And Brenda Strong (Desperate Housewives) is Ann, Bobby's wife, whose beauty and grace are matched by a fierce resolve to maintain peace within the family.

Joining this fresh new cast are the iconic stars from the original Dallas. Larry Hagman is J.R. Ewing, whose plots and schemes over the years have threatened to destroy his entire family. With an increasingly volatile feud now brewing between John Ross and Christopher, the stage is set for J.R. to return to his nefarious ways and rekindle the long-standing rivalry with his younger brother. Patrick Duffy plays Bobby Ewing, the new family patriarch, who will stop at nothing to keep John Ross and Christopher from perpetuating the family battle that tore the Ewings apart for so many years. Linda Gray is Sue Ellen Ewing, John Ross' mother, who hopes to see her son take his rightful position as head of the family.

Shot on location in the title city, Dallas comes to TNT from Warner Horizon Television, with pilot writer Cynthia Cidre and Michael M. Robin serving as executive producers. TNT's Dallas is based upon the series created by David Jacobs.

To launch the start of production, cast members will provide Twitter updates using the hashtag #tntbackontheset.
