Reba Returns To ABC In New TV Series



Reba is set to rejoin ABC in a new series penned by Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, who will serve as executive producer and showrunner. The untitled project has earned a script commitment and a penalty in a competitive situation, according to multiple sources.

McEntire commented via social media about the announcement on Dec. 12, saying, “we’re really excited!!!!”

Described as a Southern Gothic soap opera, the hourlong series is set in motion after a horrible, suspected act of terrorism happens at a 4th of July parade in the small town of Oxblood, Kentucky. The FBI sends a cocky agent of Middle Eastern descent to investigate. He teams up with the mercurial local Sheriff (McEntire) to uncover secrets far darker than either could have ever imagined.

The series also includes longtime McEntire collaborators Mindy Schultheis and Michael Hanel from Acme Productions. Both served as executive producers on McEntire’s previous series Reba (WB) and Malibu Country (ABC/ABC Studios). Cherry’s producing partner Sabrina Wind will also executive produce via their Cherry-Wind Productions.
