    Here is a new pilot that I wrote an early draft for. This is what I wish was submitted to TNT before that Cidre mess.


    Dallas

    Pilot, Bloodlines


    Summary - Set in 2012, John Ross Ewing now is a driller in Wyoming. Upon hearing news of his grandmothers Dad he visits Dallas where he has not lived regularly since 1991 when his Dad committed suicide. Christopher Ewing is now Vice President of Ewing Oil working under his Uncle Cliff who is soon set to retire. Christopher has a distant relationship with Bobby who now runs Southfork. Upon gathering for Ms. Ellie's services, it is revealed that she left all Oil under Southfork for John Ross so he would move back to Dallas and reunite with Mother Sue Ellen who he has not spoken to since his Fathers suicide. This created a conflict where John Ross is forced to stay at Southfork in order to honor Ms. Ellie's wishes. Christopher is vengeful of this as he fears that John Ross will eventually take control of Ewing Oil since he is a "real ewing".


    The only new character introduced in the pilot would be a love interest for Christopher who is heavily involved in politics. Their would be another love interest for John Ross that would be introduced in future episodes and play a huge role in the plot of future seasons. This character would be introduced in the 2nd episode.


    Christopher in this story was written similar to JR in the original series. He is cold, cunning and calculated. Christopher only cares about power and fully inheriting Ewing Oil from his Uncle Cliff. John Ross is not written like Bobby in the original series, he is not a hero but is a character with a lot of shades of gray. He is not good or bad. Instead he is a confused character that never recovered from his fathers suicide. The character is really very insecure.


    Bobby is a tired man. His opening scene is at a Dallas bar. Bobby no longer has a fighting spirit. He is a man that lives in the past.


    Sue Ellen is moving back to Dallas after the death of her husband Don Lockwood. Sue Ellen also suffers from guilt from JR's suicide and has not spoken to her son John Ross since.


    Cliff Barnes is cold blooded but not in a nutty way like he was in TNT Dallas. Cliff is similar to what we last saw in 1991. Remember he kept the sign Ewing Oil at the office when he first took it over because he wanted to send a picture to JR. This Cliff is deeply attached to Christopher and is obsessed with teaching with how to run an oil company. He is a surrogate father to Christopher. All the dirty tricks Christopher knows about the Oil Business are from Cliff.


    In this pilot, their is a speaking role for Gary although we would not use him in a regular role. We also included cameos from Ray, Lucy and Donna but did not include speaking roles for them.


    Weststar is also mentioned although Carter McKay is dead and buried. In future episodes a new CEO of Weststar would be introduced that does have a connection to the original series.

    ...What's it been 6 years or so since old Claytons funeral?

    Bobby

    ...You can't blame her for what happened.

    Bobby

    ...Your Mama loves you.


    John Ross

    ...How is Christopher?


    Bobby

    ...He is fine. He will be here tomorrow at the services.


    John Ross

    ...I remember when we were kids. I always thought of him as my little brother.


    Bobby

    ...He's changed John Ross.


    John Ross

    ...Because of Cliff?


    Bobby

    ... Not entirely.


    John Ross

    ...Power?


    Bobby

    ...He is obsessed with conquering the oil business. I'm worried that he doesn't know when to stop.


    Bobby changing the subject

    ...I hope you will consider staying John Ross. I'm sure their are plenty of jobs Cristopher could get you at Ewing Oil.


    John Ross stares angrily


    John Ross

    ...I don't need the Ewing name. I especially don't need to be getting paid by that loser that killed my Daddy.


    Bobby

    ...You know how I feel about Cliff. But he didn't kill JR. You know who killed JR? JR killed JR.


    John Ross

    ...The quicker I can get out of this purgatory the better. This house brings nothing back but bad memories.


    Bobby

    ...You can sleep in your old room if want to.


    John Ross

    ...Their ain't no place for me here. This ain't my life.


    Bobby

    Ext. JR's Grave

    John Ross walks up to JR's gravestone which is located on Southfork. It reads that JR passed in 1991. John Ross sits and puts his head closely to the gravestone.


    John Ross

    ...You told me once that you were going to teach me everything that I need to know about this business. Well you lied. You lied to me and you lied to Jock. Granddaddy would be ashamed of you. He died like a hero and you died like a coward. Things get a little hard and you quit. Your a sad man JR Ewing a very sad man. As John Ross speaks to his fathers grave we see a flashback to 1987 when Jeremy Wendell tried to take down the picture of Jock after taking over control of Ewing Oil. The words “Touch that painting and I will kill you where you stand” is how he wants to remember his Daddy.


    Ext. Mamas Funeral

    Attending the memorial are Bobby, Sue Ellen, John Ross, Christopher, his girlfriend Celeste, Lucy Ewing who now lives in California, Ray Krebbs who owns a ranch in Colorado, Donna Dowling who lives in Virginia with her husband, Gary Ewing and Valene Ewing who both still are married and live in California. Close ups of all the family members are shown. All are focused on Ms. Bobbys eulogy about Ms. Ellie accept for Sue Ellen who stares at John Ross out of the corner of her eyes.


    Bobby beginning his eulogy

    ...Mama was not always a gentle lady. She once attacked my Daddy with horse whip and chased off reporters with a shot gun. Behind that tough exterior though was a caring women that loved her family. She loved her sons. She loved her grandchildren. And she loved her husbands. Mama will be deeply missed and her presence will always be felt here at Southfork. Mama will be buried on the land she loved, the land that she cherished. We love you Mama.


    A close up is shown of Bobby crying while delivering the eulogy and closing his eyes.


    Ext. Southfork

    Many family members are gathered outside Southfork to celebrate Ms. Ellie. John Ross drinks bourbon and branch at the bar until he is tapped on the shoulder by his cousins Christopher.


    Christopher

    ...Well the drifter returns I see.


    John Ross

    ...Well I had a good reason. How you doing cousin?


    Christopher

    ...I'm happy to see you. It's been a long time. What is it now 6 years?


    John Ross

    ...I don't make it a habit of coming around this place.


    Christopher

    ...Well that's why I'm here. I don't want to make sure this doesn't become a habit.


    John Ross stares at Christopher with a sad face.


    Christopher

    ...When your Daddy ended his life he left the Ewing name in shambles. Since then I have been trying to fix it.


    John Ross

    ...Well you have done a good job


    Christopher

    ...I want to make sure that you don't return here and want a job at the company. The last thing this company needs is a little bastard like you running around.


    John Ross grabs Christopher by the shirt and puts his fist to his face.


    John Ross

    ...I would knock you senseless but it's just not worth it.


    Christopher glares at John Ross


    John Ross

    ...I'm leaving tomorrow. Nothing for me here.


    John Ross pushes Christopher as Sue Ellen watches this scene from afar.


    Int. Southfork Dining Room

    John Ross enters and pours himself another drink. Sue Ellen enters the room behind him.


    Sue Ellen

    ...Hello John Ross


    John Ross

    ...Look who it is. Mother of the year.


    Sue Ellen

    ...Is Christopher trying to get you to leave Dallas?


    John Ross

    ...Christopher doesn't want any distractions at Ewing Oil.


    Sue Ellen

    ...I need you here John Ross.


    John Ross

    ...How about all those times that I needed you.


    Sue Ellen begins crying


    Sue Ellen

    ...Don't say that John Ross


    John Ross

    ...You were never a mother. You were always a selfish bitch that only cares about herself.


    Sue Ellen

    ...I’m moving back to Dallas. Since Don died my life has been so empty. I need you back in my life.


    John Ross

    ...Go back to the booze mama.


    Sue Ellen

    ...I haven’t had a drink since you were a little child.


    John Ross

    ...My Daddy is a coward and my Mama was and always will be a lush. What do you think that makes me?


    Sue Ellen cries and walks outside the dining room. John Ross continues drinking his bourbon and branch.


    Ext. Southfork Patio (Night)

    Christopher sits overlooking the ranch while enjoying a drink as Bobby appears.


    Bobby

    ...Hello Son


    Christopher

    ... Sad day. You did a great job earlier Dad with those things you said about Grandma.


    Bobby

    ...I meant every word. Your Grandma was one heck of a lady.


    Christopher

    ...Celeste just left. She is working the campaign. I can't get that women to ever stay in Dallas.


    Bobby

    ...You love her?


    Christopher

    ...I think so Daddy.


    Bobby

    ...Their is more to life then Ewing Oil.


    Christopher

    ...I am going to put this company back on top Daddy.


    Bobby

    ...Is Uncle Cliff retiring?


    Christopher

    ...Not yet but someday it will all be mine. The entire empire. It will be back solely in Ewing Blood.


    Bobby

    ...Why is that so important to you?


    Christopher

    ... I'm going to put the Ewing Name back on top.


    Bobby

    ...At the end of the day Christopher their are things more important then the Ewing name. I just want you to be happy. Knowing your happy makes me happy.


    Christopher

    ...I know that Daddy and I love you. But understand how important it is to me to put the Ewing name back on top.


    Bobby

    ...Did you talk to John Ross?


    Christopher

    ...He is a poor soul.


    Bobby

    ...I remember then you guys were kids. You followed him everywhere.


    Christopher

    ...Let him go back to Louisiana or wherever the heck he came from.


    Bobby

    ...I think his mother wants him to stay.


    Christopher

    ...You don't need to worry about that. He will be leaving in the morning.


    Bobby stares at Christopher with a concerned look on his face.

    Sue Ellen sits at JR’s grave site.


    Sue Ellen

    Ext. Oil Barons Club


    Int. Oil Barons Club

    Cliff

    ...Frank was their ever anything you wanted more then anything?


    Frank

    ...I don’t know Mr. Barnes. Maybe a new convertible.


    Cliff

    ...All my life, I fought for Ewing Oil. It’s all I ever cared about. A long time ago I took that company and I thought all my problems were going away.


    Frank

    ...Problems?


    Cliff

    ...I took her for granted?


    Frank

    ...Ms Cooper?

    Frank

    ...It sounds like a love story


    Cliff

    ...It was


    Int. Benny’s Brewery

    Bobby sits and sips on a drink. He stares at his I-Phone and pulls up his Facebook page. He sees a new friend request from a man by the name of Luke Mitten. Bobby stares and smiles


    Int. Smithfield Law Office

    Bobby, Gary, John Ross and Christopher sit at a table with Richard Smithfield, a man in his forties who is nephew of the late Harv Smithfield who passed in the mid 1990's.


    Richard

    ...It's upsetting I need to see you all under these circumstances.


    Bobby

    ...Thanks Rich. I made sure that myself, Gary and the grandkids were here.


    Gary

    ...I have a lot of business to tend to in California. I'm flying back with Valene later this afternoon.


    Richard

    ...Well let's get right to the point then. Ms. Ellie in 2007 made some changes to her will. She left a document that he wanted me to read to everyone in this room.


    Christopher

    ...What did Grandma have to say?


    Bobby

    ...Yeah Rich what did she say.


    John Ross looks nervously as Richard begins to open the letter and read it.


    Richard

    ...This is exactly what Ms Ellie said


    Richard pauses and then begins to read the letter


    Richard l

    ...To My Sons,

    ...I wish That all three of my sons were alive to read this. I will never forgive myself for what happened to JR. I loved him with all my heart as I love all my sons. I will forever cherish our memories together and I know that I will live on in your hearts. I leave all my inheritance to Bobby and Gary. As previously stated in 1990, I leave full ownership of Southfork to Bobby. Gary is busy with his life in California and has no interest in the ranch. Therefore Bobby I leave you as the sole bearer of Southfork. I always have asked you Bobby to protect the land. As important though as the land is to me and my memory it pails in comparison to my love for family. I request upon my death that drilling begins immediately on Section 40 of Southfork. This will be the 1st field of a new oil company that will be owned by my nephew John Ross. The company will be called Southworth Oil. I ask John Ross as my last wish to run this company and stay in Dallas and build the legacy of his Daddy. I forever have loved the land. But I never loved it as much as my sons or my family.


    Christopher with anger walks out of the room and slams the door. Bobby and Gary stare in disbelief while John Ross stares down at the desk.


    Int. Ewing Oil Office

    Christopher paces in his office sweating profusely from nerves.


    Int. Oil Barons Club

    Bobby walks into the Oil Barons Club and takes a seat at the bar next to an old friend Cliff Barnes.


    Cliff

    ...What gives me the pleasure of meeting with Bobby Ewing?


    Bobby

    ...We need to talk.


    Cliff

    ...What do we have to talk about.


    Bobby

    ...It's about Christopher


    Cliff

    ...He's your son Bobby


    Bobby

    ...I know that Cliff but we may have some problems.


    Cliff

    ...What happened?


    Bobby

    ...My Mama requested drilling on Southfork in her Will and gave full rights to my nephew John Ross.


    Cliff

    ...Jr's Boy?


    Bobby

    ...Yes


    Cliff

    ...And you think that Christopher is going to try and destroy him.


    Bobby

    ...Well he did learn from the best


    Cliff

    ...You know Bobby why I never changed the name to Barnes Oil? It's because of knowing that I now own the same company that my Daddy and me fought our entire lives.


    Bobby

    ...And what about Christopher?


    Cliff

    ...I care about Christopher. I love Christopher. He will one day own Ewing Oil.


    Bobby

    ...I know that you showed Christopher every dirty trick that you know. Tell him to stay away from John Ross.


    Cliff

    ...Christopher is a grown man. He makes his own decisions.


    Bobby

    ...He listens to you Cliff. If he comes after John Ross you better watch your back. I have stayed out of the Barnes-Ewing feud for a long time but don't think I still don't have some fight left in me.


    Cliff

    ...Bobby your a rancher now. Not an oil man. You cant hurt me.


    Bobby

    ...Cliff remember what it was like fighting JR all those years ago. Do you really want that again?


    Cliff

    ...I beat your brother. Don't think I can't beat you?


    Bobby

    ...Consider yourself warned Cliff. Tell Christopher to stay away from John Ross.


    Bobby storms out of the Oil Barons Club and strikes some fear in the eyes of Cliff.

    Christopher Ewing sits in his office. He makes a call to Eric Stenson from The Cartel.


    Christopher...

    Eric I would like to meet with you. It’s about a new company called Southworth Oil.


    Ext. Southfork Field

    John Ross rides his horse out to the future drilling field at Southfork Ranch. John Ross stares at the land and briefly smiles. His cell phone beeps. John Ross receives a text message to meet Christopher at the Cowboys Stadium.


    Int. Southfork Office

    Bobby Ewing sits down in his office with hands on his head. He grabs his phone and send a Facebook message to Luke Mitten that he wants to meet him.


    Ray Krebbs comes walking into the office


    Bobby

    ...Hey Ray.


    Ray

    ...I just wanted to say goodbye before I head back to Colorado.


    Bobby

    ...You can stay longer if you would like.


    Ray

    ...This place was never for me.


    Bobby

    ...Your my brother.


    Ray

    ...Yes you are.


    Bobby

    ...I never thanked you for raising Lucas the way you did.


    Ray

    ...He is a good boy. I’m proud to be his father.


    Bobby

    ...What did I do wrong Ray?


    Ray

    ...With Christopher?


    Bobby

    ...We have him everything he ever wanted.


    Ray

    ...My entire life, I felt like an outsider in this family.


    Bobby

    ...But Ray


    Ray

    ...Let me finish! My entire life I never felt like a Ewing. I always had something to prove.


    Bobby

    ...Prove what?


    Ray

    ...That I could live up to the name Ewing. You see Bob, Jock was a fighter. He didn’t accept defeat. The man did not know how to lose. I could never live up to that.


    Bobby

    ...I never put that pressure on Christopher.


    Ray

    ...No Bob you didn’t. But Chris did. He wants to prove to everyone that he is a real Ewing.


    Bobby stares at Ray and nods his head.

    Christopher

    ...Well I get to share this stadium with the owner of Southworth Oil.


    John Ross

    ...Your a sad man Christopher.


    Christopher

    ...The only think that's going to be sad is watching me destroy your company.


    John Ross

    ...Who even said I was staying?


    Christoper

    ...No way you would do that to Ms. Ellie.


    John Ross

    ...What if your right?


    Christopher

    ...Well then i'm going to use all resources to destroy you.


    John Ross

    ...Your a disgusting human being


    Christopher

    ...However disgusting I may be you don't know what your dealing with here. I want you out of Dallas. Sell me that field.


    John Ross

    ...And tarnish Ms. Ellie's memory?


    Christopher

    ...I wont even drill on it. You sell me that land though and then you get the hell out of Dallas.


    John Ross

    ...Why do you care if I am running a separate company.


    Christopher

    ...Leave Dallas or I am going to have you thrown out.


    John Ross

    ...When I first got word today I thought about leaving. I hate it here. But you know Chris it may be worth it to stay and watch you suffer.


    Christopher

    ...Leave John Ross


    John Ross

    ...I know why your worried Christopher. It's because you don't have any real Ewing Blood.


    Christopher walks towards John Ross and slaps him


    John Ross

    ...I'm going to stay around Christopher and I'm not going to get in your way. Just stay out of mine.


    Christopher

    ...Boy you don't know what your dealing with.


    Christopher spits on John Ross shoes and walks away towards his helicopter. John Ross stares at Christopher as his helicopter leaves the arena. John Ross then pulls out a picture of his mama and Dads 2nd wedding out of his pocket. He looks at the picture and gives it a kiss.
