Will DALLAS Welcome Back Priscilla Presley?

If the best television shows today are like novels, with sustained narratives stretched out over seasons, then it would stand to reason that Web series are like short stories in glowing rectangles, drama and comedy distilled. The average Web short lasts between two and ten minutes, an easily digestible entertainment snack that doesn’t ask for too much attention in a space where a listicle can derail even the most focussed mind. The smartest Internet filmmakers understand the frenetic, lonely, jumpy browsing experience and just how much a surfer can bear when her eyes are always being pulled away. What a Web series can do, if it deploys itself correctly, is create a pause, a visual coffee break, a moment of communion in an open tab.

“He teaches mediation. I think it would be great for him to talk about that for kids,” she says. “He’s so passionate about it.”

The show’s opening-week lineup includes Tim McGraw, Josh Duhamel (Budig's former AMC co-star), Alison Sweeney (DAYS OF OUR LIVES) and Jennifer Love Hewitt (THE CLIENT LIST).
