(October 26, 2009 – Burbank, CA) – The saga of the Ewing family continues as “Dallas: The Complete Twelfth Season” comes to DVD on January 19, 2010 from Warner Home Video. With more deception, greed and scandal than ever, “Dallas: The Complete Twelfth Season’s” three disc DVD collector’s set features all 26 episodes and is priced to own at $39.98 SRP. Order due date is December 15, 2010. The Emmy® nominated series stars Larry Hagman (“I Dream of Jeannie”), Linda Gray (“Melrose Place”) and Barbara Bel Geddes (“Vertigo”) along with Patrick Duffy (“The Bold and the Beautiful”), Steve Kanaly (“All My Children”), Howard Keel (“Seven Brides for Seven Brothers”), Ken Kercheval (“Diagnosis Murder”), Charlene Tilton (“The Love Boat”) and George Kennedy (“Cool Hand Luke”). J.R. has always been a hound dog with the ladies and in Season 12 it all comes back to bite him. A dalliance with an Arkansas cutie leads J.R. to the wrong end of a shotgun, 10 years of hard labor, a prison break and the altar. And that’s just the start of 26 episodes of commotion and emotion that also include a tell-all movie (bankrolled by the first Mrs. J.R. Ewing) that threatens to unveil every low-down trick J.R. ever pulled and a rival oil man scheming to destroy the Ewing empire, taking the clan from Southfork all the way to Austria and Russia! “‘Dallas’ is landmark television and has become an American classic,” said Rosemary Markson, WHV Vice President, TV & Special Interest Marketing. “It remains a consumer favorite as fans continue to add newly released seasons of the series on DVD to their home entertainment collections.” “Dallas,” the highly popular prime time television soap opera, ran from 1978 to 1991. It revolved around businessman J.R. Ewing and his wealthy Texas family in the oil and cattle-ranching industries. The show originally debuted in April 1978 as a five-part miniseries on the CBS network. However, the immense popularity would allow it to return for an additional 13 seasons. People the world over are still watching “Dallas” on cable as the series continues to find a whole new generation of viewers. Over its 14 seasons, “Dallas” garnered 17 Emmy® nominations and four wins, 14 Golden Globe® nominations and one win, and was the #1 or #2 rated network series for five consecutive seasons.
