Reba McEntire has been busy preparing for the pilot episode of primetime ABC TV show Malibu Country, first reported by MusicRow last September.
Reba said, “ABC loves the pilot script of Malibu Country that Dave Stewart thought up, Brandon Blackstock brought to me, and Kevin Abbott wrote! What a team, April is gonna be a fun month!”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, McEntire will executive produce and star in the multi-camera comedy from ABC Studios. Her husband and manager Narvel Blackstock joins Abbot as a writer. Full production is expected to start in August 2012.
Reba brought along a video crew to a recent tour stop at the Cajun Dome in Lafayette, LA, to capture the show for her first concert special in 15 years. All The Women I Am was produced by Jon Small, a creative partner of Reba’s since the mid-‘80s. It will premiere Sat., March 17, 10:00 pm/ET on GAC.
In addition, Reba will host the March 24 Celebrity Fight Night benefit in Phoenix, and co-host the 47th Annual ACM Awards with Blake Shelton April 1 on CBS.
Reba will also be featured in upcoming episodes of NBC’s Who Do You Think You Are and Oprah’s Master Class. Reba’s episode of Who Do You Think You Are will premiere March 2, offering an up-close look inside her family history. “I can’t wait to watch the final edit,” McEntire said. “We filmed for 11 days! So worth it.”
Oprah’s Master Class airs Sunday nights on OWN and will feature McEntire on a yet-to-be-announced date.
Reba will also perform away from the camera on the International Festival of Country Music tour, hitting London, Belfast, Zurich and Mannheim, February 26-March 4. The singer is hosting a sweepstakes through Feb. 22 for tickets and backstage passes to the international dates here.
Reba is set to release her latest Dillard’s Reba collection in June, with clothes, luggage, furniture, dishes, flatware, shoes, table linens and bedding.
All that on top of recently falling victim to a death hoax fabricated by the Global Associated News. McEntire clarified, “I definitely did not fall off a mountain, nor am I dead. I am alive and kicking!”
