Dallas bosses build life-size replica of ranch

Producers of the upcoming relaunch of legendary TV drama Dallas built a full-size replica of Southfork Ranch to shoot scenes for the show.

The real property in Parker, Texas is a tourist attraction for fans of the hit sex-and-scandal programme, and the reunited cast returned to the house last year to film exterior scenes.

But bosses were so keen to recreate the look and feel of the original series, they built a life-size replica of Southfork in a huge warehouse elsewhere in Texas to avoid shooting interiors on a studio set.

Designers went to great lengths to accurately recreate the interior of the famous property - but brought it up-to-date by installing 21st century furniture, fittings, and appliances.
