The New Dallas Cast Teaser
From TNT’s relaunch of the iconic series showcases stars old and new in a steamy shower
While there are no guns aimed at J.R. Ewing from an unseen assailant, TNT evokes one of the original series’ iconic moments in a new ad for their upcoming Dallas reboot. Twenty-four years after the show debuted, J.R. (Larry Hagman) joins his brother Bobby (Patrick Duffy) in the shower where he first blissfully cleaned himself off after a nightmarish cliffhanger involving a fatal automobile accident.
The ad appears in the current issue of The Hollywood Reporter in addition to other print and online publications. Featuring a variety of new and old characters, this early image clearly hints at the producers’ aims to attract a cross-generational viewership for the series.
TNT revealed the tease campaign for its new series Dallas. The steamy artwork flashes back to one of the most iconic scenes in Dallas history: the shower scene, in which Bobby Ewing surprised viewers by returning and revealing that the previous season had been a dream.
