The stars of the upcoming TNT reboot of the classic nighttime soap Dallas took to the red carpet, but not in Los Angeles, but in Dallas to kick-off the debut of the series slated for June 13th.
The main cast was in attendance at a special event at the Winspear Opera House n downtown Dallas. Special invites were given out for a sneak peek and first look at the premiere episode, and some 65 press outlets were on hand to participate in the evening!
The new Dallas features Larry Hagman as JR Ewing, Linda Gray as Sue Ellen Ewing and Patrick Duffy as Bobby Ewing. The story centers around the wealthy Ewing family, though the spotlight shifts to younger characters John Ross Ewing III (JR and Sue Ellen’s son, played by Josh Henderson) and Christopher Ewing (the adopted son of Pam and Bobby Ewing, played by Jesse Metcalfe).
Unlike the original Dallas series, all filming this time was done locally in North Texas. Producers hope to learn soon if there will be a season two and, if so, hope to return to film an additional 13 episodes in Texas. Take a look at some photos from the premiere here.
Then after the jump, watch some red carpet and premiere interview clips from CBS News in Dallas with Larry Hagman, Linda Gray, Patrick Duffy, Jesse Metcalfe, Josh Henderson with Jordana Brewster! Are you going to give the rebooted Dallas a go and watch the TNT premiere on June 13th? Let us know!
