Sucking in viewers with the dramas, scandals, and intrigues of the Texan elite, DALLAS quickly became a national sensation after debuting in 1978. The most popular nighttime soap since the 1960s series PEYTON PLACE, the series would run for a total of 13 seasons and become one of the biggest hits of the '80s. Driven principally by the dramatic affairs of the rich Ewing family, DALLAS derived much of its drama from its characters' pursuit of money, sex, and power. Starring Larry Hagman as the nefarious J.R. Ewing, the series also boasted a talented supporting cast, including Barbara Bel Geddes, Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray, Priscilla Presley, and many more. The wicked fun continues with this 11th season of duplicity and murder, as J.R. scrambles to wrest back control of Ewing Oil.
