Reba Could Return to Small Screen

Pilot approved by ABC.

It seems Reba McEntire will be heading to the small screen again next August as the star of a new television sitcom that the redhead will also executive produce. Titled Malibu Country, the sitcom will feature Reba as a woman who divorces her cheating husband and moves from Nashville to Malibu with her three children and attempts to revive her singing career.

“I know you’ve all been asking, and I can confirm that the rumors are true,” Reba said in a statement released to CountryWeekly.com. “We had our meeting yesterday with the folks at ABC and we now have a pilot with ABC! That means we will shoot the pilot next April and if everything goes like we hope it will, we’ll be shooting a sitcom called Malibu Country next August! Wooohooooo! I’m so excited about doing another TV sitcom! I miss the Reba show so much so it will be great to get back into the TV world again!

Reba ran from 2001 to 2007, first on the WB network and then on the CW.
