Sep 9, 2011  •  Post A Comment

ABC has given a put pilot commitment to a pilot for a multicamera comedy that will put a country music superstar in the spotlight, Deadline.com reports.

The show is “Malibu Country,” which will bring country singer Reba McEntire back to TV sitcoms. McEntire and her former showrunner/writer Kevin Abbott — they did "Reba" for the WB — are reteaming for the new effort.

The plot concerns McEntire’s fictional life after her country-rocker hubby runs around on her and leaves her busted. She divorces him and exits Nashville with her three kids for a little place in Malibu, where she recharges her music career and tries to keep from getting caught up in the Hollywood lifestyle.


  1. zzzzzzzzzz

  2. Her fans will be there and that will be a huge success for ABC

  3. Uhm, didn’t she already do this? right down to the cheating husband and three kids?Well, her old show had four kids but it played like there were only three.
    If we have to watch Reba, can we see her play a woman who isn’t a naive sap?!
    otherwise I agree with John in Oklahoma – zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
