These were snapped at a press junket for TNT’s new “Dallas” series that took place at the Four Seasons hotel in Philadelphia last month. The series is not a reboot of the original from the 70s & 80s, but rather a continuation of the original story that will focus mainly around John Ross Ewing III and Christopher Ewing, the now-adult sons of Ewing brothers J.R. and Bobby, respectively. Along with a few of the original actors returning to the new show, the cast in the new series includes Josh Henderson, Jordana Brewster, Jesse Metcalfe & many others. Here’s some plot action:
The series revolves around the Ewings, a wealthy Dallas family in the oil and cattle-ranching industries. It will focus mainly on John Ross Ewing III, the son of J.R. and Sue Ellen Ewing; and Christopher Ewing, the adopted son of Bobby Ewing and Pam Ewing. Both John Ross and Christopher were born during the original series’ run and were featured in it as children. 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. [Read more]
