11 New Soaps We Can't Wait to Lather Up With!
No. 1: Dallas, TNT
This mega soap isn’t exactly new; in fact it’s the continuation of the most popular primetime sudser of all time. There’s no way any one calling themself a soap fan will be anywhere other than glued to TNT when Dallas premieres at 9/8C on June 13!
J.R. (Larry Hagman), Bobby (Patrick Duffy) and Sue Ellen (Linday Gray) Ewing are all back for the 10-week, re-visitation of the classic CBS drama about a feuding, Texas oil family. Desperate Housewives’ alums Brenda Strong, Josh Henderson and Jesse Metcalfe represent the new generation of Ewings, as Bobby’s latest wife Ann Ryland Ewing; J.R. and Sue Ellen’s nefarious son John Ross and Bobby and Pam’s adopted offspring Christopher, respectively.
Jordana Brewster appears as Elena Ramos, daughter of the Ewing maid—whom both cousins love— while Julie Gonzalo stars as Christopher’s fiancé Rebecca Sutter. Look for guest appearances from several stars from the original 1978-91 serial, including Ken Kercheval as J.R.’s arch nemesis Cliff Barnes, Steve Kanaly as illegitimate Ewing son Ray Krebbs and Charlene Tilton as J.R. and Bobby’s busty, manipulative niece Lucy.
