According to Deadline, Reba McEntire’s new drama for ABC is already dead in the water.
The show was to be centered around Reba as a small-town sheriff Ruby Adair. Ruby finds her worldview changing as a young FBI agent of Middle Eastern descent is sent to help her solve a horrific crime.
Supposedly, the show is being shopped around to CMT.
Reba previously told CMT’s Cody Alan a bit about the project, “I’m a dark character. I’ve got a lot of flaws and demons, and I’m having a lot of problems in my personal life. My town is being disrupted and I’m having to deal with it all. I’m under a lot of stress.”
We really need this show in our lives.
