Reba McEntire is making a return to television, following her stint as a coach on the reality singing competition The Voice. She’s collaborating once again with NBC on an untitled multi-camera comedy pilot.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show centers around McEntire’s character, who unexpectedly inherits her father’s restaurant and is less than thrilled to discover a new business partner in the form of the half-sister she never knew existed.
McEntire is set to work with seasoned showrunner Kevin Abbott, known for his work on Last Man Standing, Roseanne, and The Golden Girls. Joining the team are former Reba executive producers Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis.
This upcoming NBC comedy series represents the network’s initial pilot order for 2024, following the conclusion of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.
Fans may recall Reba McEntire’s television success in the early 2000s with her hit sitcom Reba, which ran for six seasons from 2001 to 2007. In that series, McEntire portrayed a Texas-based mother navigating the challenges of the end of her marriage, her husband’s infidelity scandal, and her daughter’s teenage pregnancy.
