Looks like Reba McEntire is getting back into the TV game.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that she will star in a brand new TV show that will be airing on ABC. While she is usually cast in funny roles, looks like this one might be a drama. It’s rumoured to be headed up by ‘Desperate Housewives’ creator Marc Cherry.
“The drama is described as a Southern Gothic soap opera that is set in motion after a suspected act of terrorism happens at a Fourth of July parade in the small town of Oxblood, KY,” THR reports. “The FBI sends a cocky agent of Middle Eastern descent to investigate. He teams with the mercurial local sheriff to uncover secrets far darker than either could have ever imagined.”
No word on the name of the show, or when it might air…but Reba is excited to get cracking on it! She recently posted this picture with the script.
