Iconic country musician Reba McEntire has inked a two-picture deal with Lifetime. According to the network, McEntire will star and produce the two movies.
The first of the projects will be a Christmas film with a working title Christmas In Tune. The film will feature an original holiday song by McEntire. Casting is currently underway and the filming will start this spring.
McEntire said, “I am thrilled to partner with Lifetime for a return to television movies! My fans and I enjoy their programming and loved watching the Reba show there for so many years.”
Christmas In Tune tells the story of Belle, a marketing executive who is worried she may lose her job. She decides to reunite a singing duo for a charity Christmas concert, but the problem is – the singers are actually her parents and they have not spoken to each other in years!
Soon, the at-odds couple is helping Belle get her life in order and she begins her own romantic duet with the new man in her life.
Christmas in Tune is written by Juliet Giglio and Keith Giglio and produced by Hartbreak Films with Paula Hart and McEntire serving as executive producers.
“Reba has been a creative force in both music and television for many years. We are thrilled to have her on board to produce and star in not just one – but two movies for us,” said Tanya Lopez, EVP of Movies, Limited Series & Original Movie Acquisitions, Lifetime and LMN.
She added, “Reba has been part of Lifetime’s air many years ago and we can’t wait to welcome her back!”
