Reba McEntire Plots TV Return With ABC's Comedy


Reba McEntire


The alphabet has handed out a put pilot commitment to 'Malibu Country' which centers on McEntire's divorcee character who tries to reignite her singing career.

Four years after the end of her hit sitcom "Reba", Reba McEntire is set to headline a new show on ABC. She is attached to star in a multi-camera comedy project titled "Malibu Country", which has been sold to the network with a put pilot commitment.

McEntire will also executive produce the show, which centers on her character whose rock-star husband cheats on her. She divorces him and moves her family from Nashville to Malibu, where she tries to reignite her singing career while keeping herself and three kids from being corrupted by the materialistic and rarified Malibu world.

"Reba" showrunner Kevin Abbott is going to write and serve as executive producer alongside McEntire, Mindy Schultheis, Michael Hanel, Narvel Blackstock, Dave Stewart and Pam Williams.

McEntire grabbed a Golden Globe award for her role on "Reba" in 2004. After the show was axed in 2007, she appeared in one episode each of "Better with You" and "Working Class".
