Reba McEntire and Melissa Peterman to Play Sisters role
Fifteen years after the WB-turned-CW sitcom Reba ended its six-season run, series stars Reba McEntire and Melissa Peterman will reunite at The Hammer,
McEntire, who is also an executive producer, will play Kim Wheeler, "an outspoken and straightforward attorney appointed as a judge for Nevada's Fifth District,
“After the incumbent judge dies under suspicious circumstances, Kim finds herself walking a track that stretches between Las Vegas and Reno, a bumpy road and
often desolate area where anything can happen. With the gavel in hand, he dictates the law with a mark of healthy justice.
"As investigations into the former judge's death intensify, Kim's sister Kris (Peterman), who runs the local brothel, suddenly becomes the prime suspect."
The synopsis continues. As a result, Kim is forced to "work even harder to make sure she is done justice".
The cast also includes McEntire's real-life boyfriend, CSI: Miami veteran Rex Linn, and Totally Normal's Kay Shioma Metchie. A date for the premiere has not yet been announced.
Reba premiered on The WB in 2001 and ran for six seasons (and 125 episodes) through 2007. The series told the story of Reba Hart.
