'We laid waste to everything in our path, J.R. And for what?'

dallas-tnt-new-cast-hagman-duffy.jpgLarry Hagman took more nasty spills as J.R. Ewing Monday night, informing viewers that younger brother Bobby "was always a fool" before vowing to take another turn as Texas' oiliest oil baron.

"I'm the one who belongs on Southfork. It's mine. And only mine," he said at the close of TNT's one-minute promos for its new Dallas series, scheduled to premiere next summer.

The 10-episode first season will be shot in North Texas, with production tentatively set to begin in mid-October.

The spots, which included the still resonant Dallas theme song, aired during the season premieres of TNT's most popular dramas, The Closer and Rizzoli & Isles. At first glances, Patrick Duffy (Bobby) looked to be the most vigorous of the three returnees from CBS' original Dallas (1978-91).

Hagman and Linda Gray (J.R.'s ex, Sue Ellen) also are being mixed and matched with a new set of spiteful, willful, much younger Ewing offshoots.

Take a look. And if you want more, go to TNT's Dallas page.
