In other news… Would you like some cheap gas to go along with your anticipation for season three? As a way to kick off the new season The Ewings will take over one gas station that will cut its prices for one day only - therefore undercutting the competition while supplies last, Ewing-style! Viewers will have to wait until Monday February 24 at 8:00 AM to find out which station and where it's located and should keep an eye out at various "Dallas" social media outlets, The New York Times, radio promotions, billboards, wrapped oil tankers and special video messages by John Ross Ewing (Josh Henderson) on Facebook. If you don't live near the flagship station, you'll have a chance to win a $50 custom Black Gold Card through TNT's sweepstakes via the Dallas Facebook page. Also, season two is now available on DVD at various online venues.
"There's no better way to celebrate the return of 'Dallas' than with a promotion that is Texas-sized and audacious," said Tricia Melton, senior vice president of entertainment marketing and branding for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "We're excited about unveiling the surprise location of Ewing Energies."
"Producing a campaign for TNT that effectively showcases how the world's most powerful fictional family, the Ewings, can blur the lines and wield enough power to change something in the real world is the type of work that Grey lives and breathes for," said Lisa Topol, executive creative director at Grey New York, the agency working with TNT on the activation. "Fans will just have to wait and see how generous the Ewings will be with the final price of gas."
