Manny P. here…

   Dallas is returning to television. The iconic nighttime soap opera will air in the Summer of 2012 on the TNT network.

   A new generation of cast members will join Larry Hagman (J.R.), Patrick Duffy (Bobby), and Linda Gray (Sue-Ellen). Ten episodes have been ordered and filming began in October. The production is expected to wrap in January. The location shooting is taking place entirely in Dallas, Texas (of course).

   Son of Broadway legend Mary Martin, Larry Hagman has enjoyed a long career in motion pictures and television. His movie credits include Ensign Pulver, In Harm’s Way, Fail Safe, Nixon, JFK, Harry and Tonto, and the 1978 production of Superman. He’s best known for roles on the small screen in I Dream of Jeannie and Dallas. He began his career on the Daytime Soap Operas – Search For Tomorrow and The Edge of Night               LARRY HAGMAN —>

   Over the years, Hagman received several Golden Globe and Emmy nominations for playing J.R. Ewing. In October, Hagman announced he was diagnosed with a treatable form of cancer. We can root against J.R., but we wish the versatile actor all the best in his ongoing battle.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
