Reba McEntire is officially returning to your TV screen in 2017! I’ve been waiting for this for years!
Reba McEntire has had a rough year after her divorce from Narvel Blackstock, but she is back at it again and stronger than ever. The country star has been performing in Vegas with Brooks and Dunn and now she has some more exciting news for all of her fans.
Entertainment Weekly has finally spilled all of the beans saying that Reba is for sure going to be returning to the television screen this year. The mastermind behind the show we all love, Desperate Housewives, is now creating a new drama for ABC and it is highly anticipated.
Marc Cherry, has the job of creating a new drama series that shows a darker view of “life in the South” and Reba is going to be starring in it. It is said to be a Southern Gossip soap opera and there is already a pilot scheduled for the 2017-18 season!
The show is going to star the country singer as a Kentucky sheriff named Ruby Adair. ABC says that IF the drama is picked up to series it will “follow how Ruby’s “red state outlook” is challenged when a young FBI agent of Middle Eastern descent arrives to help her solve a “horrific crime….The two pair up as Ruby introduces her Southern Gothic community to the agent, who meets an “assortment of bizarre characters, each with a secret of their own.”
Reba is also going to be an executive producer on the show as well. Marc Cherry spoke with Entertainment Weekly sharing that he is absolutely thrilled to be working with Reba on this new endeavor, not only going back to ABC, but also being able to work side by side with her.
“I am thrilled to be coming back home to ABC,” Creator Marc Cherry said. “What makes it all the sweeter is Reba McEntire is coming with me. And we can’t wait to share with our fans this wonderful Southern Gothic soap opera we’ve been cooking up for them.”
Apparently ABC has already been approved to start filming the Pilot too, which is pretty awesome! Reba is one of the most talented and respected women in country and she definitely deserves this gig!
Reba has made several appearances on tv shows, but we can’t wait to see her the star of another show!
