(January 7, 2008 – Burbank, CA) – JR and the whole Ewing family is back for another season of hot-blooded Texas drama as Oscar® Award winner Donna Reed joins that cast, starring as Miss Ellie. “Dallas: The Complete Eighth Season” arrives on DVD February 12, 2008 from Warner Home Video with an all-new exploration of the fashion of “Dallas” in a special featurette on the revolutionary look brought to the show by Emmy® Award winning costume designer, Travilla. This special DVD collector’s set which features all 30 1-hour episodes and is priced to own at $39.98 SRP. Order due date is January 8, 2008. “Dallas” fans just can’t get enough of the Ewing’s and Season 8 brings a new one – cousin Jamie Ewing, a blonde, blue-eyed little ol’ cupcake with a big, fat claim on the family’s oil empire. This season of “Dallas” also brings a new face: Oscar® Award winner Donna Reed stepping gracefully into Miss Ellie’s high heels while an ailing Barbara Bel Geddes recovers. And, of course, it brings a gusher of high-tension, high-finance drama: three corpses, one murder trial, weddings, breakups, adultery, medical traumas, kidnapping, lies, long-forgotten secrets and sudden wealth. That’s not all, not by a Texas Longhorn shot. The season ends with that dynamic “Dallas” classic, a wow-did-you-see-that cliffhanger.
