TNT is starting the publicity machine for the resumption of the Dallas television series.  The show won't start airing until next Summer, so TNT will essentially get a year to 'do it right'.

The new version of Dallas includes three cast members from the show's previous incarnation on CBS.  Larry Hagman is back to play J.R. Ewing, Patrick Duffy plays Bobby Ewing and Linda Gray resumes her role as Sue Ellen Ewing. Also returning, the show's iconic theme music.

Based upon TNT's recent track record for original series (The Closer, Franklin & Bash and Men of a Certain Age) I think TNT will do a good job on Dallas.

TNT released a preview video, which you can see right here on
