Late last week TNT announced plans to pick up a next generation "Dallas" pilot to series. Last night the trailer for the new show debuted, bringing back familiar faces (Larry Hagman as JR! Linda Gray as Sue Ellen! Patrick Duffy as Bobby!) and introducing new actors as their offspring.
Is it wrong that I'm already excited about this show that will air next summer? As a child of the '80s who stayed up watching the show with my parents on Friday nights, I can't help it.
Although a new "Dallas" means nothing to the young viewers TNT craves, I suspect if it's done well it will draw enough older viewers to be successful -- especially because it will be on cable (and not a network) and because it will air during the summer when scripted dramas are in short supply.
