Oil is on its way out with electric cars and solar shingles. John Ross works the Southfork Ranch where he rules over the land like Jock. Well respected among the rands hands like his grandpa. He was a single father, raising his children alone, now their all in their twenties making lives for themseleves. Jack’s mother, Elena, spent most of his life in prison. Ellie’s mother, Marta DelSol, died in labor. Steven’s mother is just missing. Lucy showed up to help with the kids having acquired Bobby’s half of South Fork. John Ross destroyed everyone taking control of Ewing Global, renaming it Ewing Industries as a giant conglomerate, think Koch Industries, in the wake of the collapse of oil. Now his children fight the outside world as they take their place in the company. John Ross is retired but still very much involved including being on the phone with friends Senator Judith Ryland and billionaire Carlos DelSol. He directs his generals who run his empire like Jock did. Lucy runs the giant Ewing Farlow Foundation and is the link to the past overseeing fundraisers and social club meetings. Turns out she also owns 40% of Ewing Industries with John Ross owning 40% and the DelSol’s owning 20%. She fills Miss Ellie’s role. Juan Carlos DelSol, Marta’s brother and John Ross’s friend (think Punk). Juan Carlos runs his father’s businesses and jet sets like most people drive. He’s the Chairman (non-executive) of Ewing Industries and keeps tabs on the company for John Ross. Mateo Rameos, Elena’s other brother, is another of John Ross’s good friends (think Bum and Drew), a go to man who runs Branch Water, a paramilitary company owned by Ewing Industries. He’s also revealed as Teresa’s nephew, former navy seal and possibly current CIA. The story revolves around the three Ewing 4th generation children: Jack (John Ross), who attempts to take control of the company and be the crown prince, torn between two women seeking his attention for different reasons and his domineering sister for whom no one is good enough for her brother. He’s a good guy, maybe too good for his own good. A playboy who’s best suited to ranching and film making. Based on Howard Hughes. Ellie (Maria Marta Eleanor DelSol) who is all about family and is ruthless just like her grandfather, will do what it takes to promote the Ewing’s and take care of her brothers. A behind the scenes bitch who’s best suited to Machiavellian politics. Based on J. Paul Getty. Steven (Steven Clayton), who is brilliant, awkward and vulnerable, a sad character who is best suited to run the company. Based on Barbara Hutton.
