Dallas: The Complete 8th Season
21-Feb-2008 -

A new Ewing is starting some trouble in Texas…
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 arrived 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 features all 30 1-hour episodes.

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.

"Dallas Season Eight includes all the drama and the scandal the audience has come to know from the Ewing family,
plus fans of the fashion of show will get a special look at the work of fashion designer, Travilla,” explained Rosemary
Markson, WHV Vice President, TV & Special Interest Marketing. “We are excited to be able to offer loyal and new fans
a special insight into the iconic show and the trends it inspired.”
