ABC has picked up a pair of comedy projects, including one written by and starring Reba McEntire.
McEntire is attached to executive produce and star inMalibu Country,a multicamera comedy from ABC Studios.
The half-hour project centers on Reba, who divorces her cheating husband and moves her family from Nashville to Malibu. There she’ll try to reignite her own singing career and keep herself and three kids from being corrupted by the materialistic and rarified Malibu world she now calls home.
The project counts Kevin Abbott as a writer, with Narvel Blackstock (McEntire’s manager), Laura Ziskin Productions’ Pam Williams, Dave Stewart (former of the Eurythmics) and Acme Productions’ Mindy Schultheis and Michael Hanel.
