TNT is heading to Southfork to give one of TV's most famous families a facelift.
The cable network has ordered an updated version of Dallas. The pilot, from Cane creator Cynthia Cidre, will focus on the offspring of brothers and enemies JR and Bobby Ewing. The original primetime soap opera, still known for the "Who shot JR?" mystery, ran on CBS from 1978 to 1991.

Question: Can you tell me whether The Unit, Shark and/or Cane will be back?
Answer: I could, but then I'd be missing an opportunity to funnel some traffic to my handy "Bubble Show Status" chart, which can be accessed by clicking here.

Question: So if the strike continues too long, which shows will be screwed the most? Will they cancel 30 Rock, saying it never built an audience? What about some of the new shows this season? Will networks use the strike as an excuse to cancel "bubble" shows like Cane and Life? Basically what I'm asking is: If the strike goes on too long, will the networks just call this season a wash and start over in the fall?
Answer: I only wish I had a crystal ball to address these larger questions (fearing the actual answers, maybe it's just as well that I don't), but again, I don't think it's likely that NBC will use the strike as an excuse to cancel 30 Rock, which the network has stood behind despite its lousy ratings on Thursday. The situation seems more dire for new-season shows that were on the brink of cancellation even before the strike kicked in. It's entirely too early to know if the back half of the season is doomed. I certainly hope not, but there's not a great deal of optimism comin ...
Get your scorecards handy, because this is only the beginning of the strike-related fallout you'll wanna keep track of: Although a location manager for CBS' Cane hired two security guards to help out while the show shot scenes from a long-completed script at a Hollywood cafe, 20 angry writers who were yelling and using a bullhorn brought the production to a halt anyway. ABC has postponed the debut of its Sex and the City rip-off, Cashmere Mafia to sometime after Jan. 1. The Nov. 27 Dancing with the Stars finale is being expanded to two full hours to fill the void. Sometime-writer Steve Carell didn't report to The Office yesterday, Rainn Wilson called in sick, and B.J. Novak and Mindy Kaling, who are members of the show's writing staff, were on strike. As a result, only two scenes managed to get shot. Ellen DeGeneres bailed on her show yesterday "in support of her writers," her publicist said. Ben Katner
