TNT has a new take on “Dallas” and has hired Cynthia Cidre (“Cane,” Mambo Kings) to write the project, says The Hollywood Reporter. Warner Horizon is producing the series.
TNT and Warner Horizon are not giving away story details, but the trade says the initial idea was to have the series revolve around J.R. and Sue Ellen’s son John Ross and Bobby and Pam’s adopted son Christopher.
They add that Patrick Duffy, who played Bobby in the original series, Larry Hagman (J.R.) and Linda Gray (Sue Ellen) were approached two months ago about potentially reprising their roles.
“Dallas” premiered in 1978 on CBS and ran for 13 seasons.
