    Concept: Jack left Dallas to put his life together. Jamie had given him money, Cliff had given him money, so he wasn’t totally broke, but for the most part he was just trying to make it. He went into the old business in Michigan where he meet a friend, Oscar Haven, who’s family was already wealthy from oil, farming, etc., including a small investment in chemicals. Jack, Jamie (before her death) and Oscar partnered to form Ewing Chemical which grew into a billion dollar business. Jack goes on to marry Oscar’s sister and create a family similar to his Uncle Jock’s. I won’t use actors for this one, just descriptions.


    Miss Ellie becomes Jacquline “Jackie” Marie nee Haven Ewing, 60 something, worldly and elegant black woman


    Jock would become “Oscar” Haven, Jackie’s older brother, a very wealthy black man who takes over following the death of Jack, sort of a Hamlet scenario, he also owns the local pro soccer team, is a large investor in the DMC (the Detroit Motor Company) and in Clark Bank as well as serving on various boards. Married several times, based on J. Paul Getty


    JR becomes “Jason” Ross Ewing II, the oldest child of Jack and Jackie’s, early 30’s, he’s more like the Bobby character, the favorite son, a lady’s msn who tries to do what’s right


    Sue Ellen becomes Eliana “Elle” Marie nee Bishop Ewing, setting up the Romeo and Juliet scenario, a bit of a cross between Sue Ellen, Pam and Donna, a Hispanic woman from the rival family


    note: mentioned but missing middle child, Jamie Shaw Ewing (late 20’s)


    John Ross becomes Jason “Jay” Ross Ewing, III, precocious 8 year old


    Add Eric, Jay’s younger brother, 6 years old


    Bobby becomes “Jessica” Marie Ewing, the youngest child of Jack and Jackie, mid twenties, she’s more like JR, a bit of a replacement for Lucy, she can’t stand Nan, loves her brotherJason and is at war with Oscar.


    Digger becomes “Richard” William Bishop, Jr., Ellie’s father and CEO of B.A.S.P. (the crosstown, very successful, rival chemical company), Hispanic, son of former Michigan Governor Richard “Rick” William Bishop, Sr., based on Joseph Kennedy


    Cliff becomes Richard William “Will” Bishop III, Richard’s son, Elle’s brother, Hispanic, pushed into politics, he’s gay, a fact he must keep hidden to his family for political purposes, based on Robert Kennedy


    note: missing are Lucy which is merged in with Jessica and Pam which is merged in with Elle

    This is sort of a cross between a spin off and a reboot.
