The battle for energy, power, love and money rages again among the Texas oil dynasty known as the Ewing family.
In the all-new Dallas — based upon one of the most popular television dramas of all time — the battle for energy, power, love and money rages again among the Texas oil dynasty known as the Ewing family.
Now the iconic elder Ewings are joined by the next generation, who take ambition and deception to another level. First there's John Ross Ewing (Josh Henderson), the son of J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) and Sue Ellen Ewing (Linda Gray), who's determined to undermine his grandmother’s legacy by drilling for oil on Ewing land.
Meanwhile, Christopher Ewing (Jesse Metcalfe), the adopted son of Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy), hopes to take the family business away from oil and in the new direction of alternative energy sources. Christopher is motivated by his fiancée, Rebecca Sutter (Julie Gonzalo), who is trying to find her place in the vast Ewing family tree — a big difference from her upbringing with only her brother, Tommy (Callard Harris) for support. Complicating matters is the presence ofa ambitious Elena Ramos (Jordana Brewster), John Ross’s girlfriend and Christopher’s former fiancée, with whom the cousins grew up at Southfork.
With an increasingly volatile feud now brewing between John Ross and Christopher, the stage is set for J.R. to return to his nefarious ways and rekindle his own long-standing rivalry with his younger brother, Bobby. As the current family patriarch, Bobby will stop at nothing to keep the younger Ewings from perpetuating the battle that nearly brought down the entire family. Bobby is backed up by his wife, Ann (Brenda Strong), whose beauty and grace match her fierce resolve to maintain peace within the family. But when a medical issue threatens his life, Bobby is forced to make a tough decision that could forever alter the lives of everyone he loves.
Always ready to stir the pot is Sue Ellen, John Ross’s mother, who hopes to see her son take his rightful position as head of the family. It’s clear the rivalry between John Ross and Christopher is just as fierce as that of their fathers, especially when it involves the love of both of their lives, Elena. This intertwining relationship among the three is a source of constant tension that could eventually tear the Ewing family apart.
