The series is a continuation of the original series of the same name that aired on CBS from 1978 to 1991, according to Wikipedia. A total of 10 episodes will carry the original and next generation of Ewings through the summer. The next generation includes John Ross Ewing III, the son of J.R. and Sue Ellen Ewing, and Christopher Ewing, the adopted son of Bobby Ewing and Pam Ewing.
What’s new? Bobby’s got a new wife, Ann Ewing, but you’ll recognize her as ABC‘s Desperate Housewives‘ actress Brenda Strong — the one who got killed off early and voiced the beginning and end of nearly every DH episode. She’s not the only Desperate Housewives star on board. Christopher Ewing is the former teenage gardener John Rowland from the popular drama Desperate Housewives where he played the young lover of Gabrielle Solis played by Eva Longoria.
It’s got good reviews. I’ll be watching.
