Season two casting call

The primetime television soap opera “Dallas” is heading back into production on its second season, which has been renewed for a 15 episode run by TNT. The casting directors in Los Angeles are auditioning for two new series regulars – one is a blonde female in her early 20s and the other is a Hispanic male in his early-mid 30s. Additional guest starring and recurring roles will be cast in L.A., while smaller speaking roles will be handled by the Texas casting director. All of the extras are cast in Texas, where shooting will begin on September 24, 2012.

The network casting directors in New York, and the Los Angeles casting directors have assembled a terrific cast in this continuation of the original series of the same name that aired on CBS from 1978 to 1991. Four-time Golden Globe Award nominee Larry Hagman is back as J.R. Ewing, two-time Golden Globe Award nominee Linda Gray as Sue Ellen Ewing, and Soap Opera Digest Award winner Patrick Duffy as Bobby Ewing – all from the original series. New cast members for this TNT show are Josh Henderson as John Ross Ewing III, the son of J.R. and Sue Ellen; Jesse Metcalfe as Christopher Ewing, the adopted son of Bobby and his ex-wife Pamela Barnes Ewing; Jordana Brewster as Elena Ramos, who is locked into a love triangle with Christopher and John; and Brenda Strong as Ann Ewing, Bobby’s third wife.

Primetime Emmy Award nominee Cynthia Cidre is executive producer, head writer, and showrunner on “Dallas”. Due to the Writers Guild of America’s screenwriting credit system, Cidre is credited as “developer” instead of “creator”. The original “Dallas” show’s characters were created by David Jacobs, and since this is a continuation of that series (as opposed to a remake/reboot), Jacobs is listed a “creator” of this new show. Also executive producing is two-time Primetime Emmy Award winner Michael M. Robin, and Producers Guild of America PGA Award nominee Robert L. Rovner. Two-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee Ken Topolsky is producer.

The first season of “Dallas” was 10 episodes, and premiered on June 13, 2012 as the number one scripted series premiere for the year-to-date, drawing 7.8 million viewers. “Dallas” ended up giving TNT the number one new show on basic cable for the third year in a row. TNT announced on June 29, 2012 that the network renewed Dallas for a second season consisting of 15 episodes, scheduled to premiere in January 2013.
