Deadline reports that the new Dallas update will focus on the offspring of rival brothers J.R. (Larry Hagman) and Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy) who clash over the future of the Ewing dynasty while the fate of their family home Southfork hangs in the balance.
The pilot will be written by Cane creator Cynthia Cidre and will be produced by Warner Horizon Television.
The network has also entered production on Perception, a new crime drama that follows Dr. Geoffrey Pierce, "an eccentric neuroscientist who uses his unique outlook to help the federal government solve complex cases". The pilot will be produced by ABC Studios.
Allan Loeb, writer of the upcoming Wall Street sequel, will also adapt the Marshall Karp novel The Rabbit Factory. The currently untitled pilot will revolve around widowed police Detective Mike Lomax and his newly married partner Terry Biggs as they "delve into a world of mystery, intrigue and occasional hijinks".
"These pilots reflect our enthusiasm for relatable and complex everyman heroes, showcased in exciting storytelling environments," said TNT executive Michael Wright. "The writers of these projects bring great intelligence, heart and humour to their work. We are confident each of these projects would be a terrific addition to our original series lineup."
