LOS ANGELES, April 7 (UPI) -- Actress Brenda Strong has joined the cast of the pilot for TNT's new edition of the nighttime soap "Dallas," TVGuide.com reported.

Strong spent seven seasons as narrator Mary Alice Young on ABC's "Desperate Housewives."

The actress is to play Ann Ewing, the latest wife of Bobby Ewing, played by Patrick Duffy, on "Dallas," TVGuide.com said Wednesday.
