TNT, Groupon pact for “Dallas” package


In celebration of TNT’s new series “Dallas” debuting 6/13 at 9 pm, Groupon and TNT are inviting fans to “live large like a Ewing” and indulge in an epic “Dallas” getaway, available at

Priced at $1,978 (the year the original show premiered) and valued at more than $10,000, each two-person package brings to life the luxury and high drama of America’s greediest, most notorious heirs, beginning with:

— First-class air travel to Dallas / Ft. Worth International Airport

–Private tour of Southfork Ranch, the Ewing family home

–Autographed memorabilia from the new series and a custom cowboy hat, boots and bolo tie

Once secret family alliances are established and “Ewing” is added to all surnames, a personal chauffeur will whisk guests to downtown Dallas for a weekend of unabashed luxury:

–$500 / person shopping spree at Dallas’ most Ewing-worthy shops

–Camera-ready custom makeover

–Intimate, five-star custom dinner at Fearing’s, ranked one of the top restaurants in Dallas by Zagat

–Two-night stay in one of the Magnificent 7 suites of glamorous Hotel ZaZa

–Chauffeured SUV for each couple for the entire weekend

However, it’s likely the deals have already been scooped up: Subscribers will need to keep an eye on the site; with just five units available (accommodating 10  customers total), the deal could go live unexpectedly at any moment.

“This package is a great way for viewers to get into the spirit of TNT’s new Dallas in a big, Texas-sized way,” said Tricia Melton, senior vice president of entertainment marketing for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies. “We’re pleased to work with Groupon to bring this opportunity to fans who want to experience a little bit of the Ewing magic.”
