REBA: 'MALIBU COUNTRY'
DUBLIN (AP) -- Reba McEntire is ready to be a TV star again. In fact, she says she never wanted to leave the sitcom business in the first place. Her hit show "Reba" was canceled in 2006 even though it was No. 1 on the WB and the CW cable channels. Now ABC has picked up a pilot for the show "Malibu Country." McEntire stars as a woman who divorces her rock-star husband and moves her three kids from Nashville to Malibu to resurrect her singing career. McEntire says she loved the Beverly hillbillies premise immediately. She says it reminded her of her own life, moving out to L.A. to shoot "Reba" in 2000 with her husband and son. A premiere date has not been announced.
