With Larry Hagman reprising his role as the conniving Texas oilman, filming is under way at locations all over the city for TNT’s new television series Dallas, which will also see the return of Patrick Duffy as JR’s brother Bobby and Linda Gray as ex-wife Sue Ellen, along with a new generation of Ewings.
And, of course, the spotlight also returns to the city itself, with its distinctive skyline rising from the prairie.
“We’re trying to give the show a real sense of place and Dallas has a real personality,” said location manager John Patterson. “It’s a city that does things in a big way. That’s part of JR and part of what we try to give the show – a sense of the city, which is big, very well done, shiny, new and looking towards the future.”
TNT has ordered 10 episodes of the series, to be shown next summer. Filming for the series, shot entirely in Dallas, began in mid-October and is expected to wrap in late January.
“There was just no way we were going to film anywhere else,” said executive producer Cynthia Cidre, who also wrote the pilot for the new series, a “mix of the old world and the new world”.
The original series, shown from 1978 to 1991, enjoyed popularity around the world as viewers tuned in to watch the scheming Ewing family. As the plot twisted and turned season after season, the series contributed to some of TV’s most memorable moments.
