Series Info

A new clan of Ewings hits the air---and the sheets---in this `Dallas' spin-off set on a cul-de-sac in Southern California and centering on the exploits of recovering alcoholic Gary Ewing (brother of J.R.), his wife and their friends---and enemies. The hugely successful drama outlasted all other nighttime soaps of the '80s, running for 14 seasons. Trivia note: Even though Bobby Ewing's death (famously) turned out to be only a dream on `Dallas,' he remained dead in the `Knots Landing' universe.
