Reba is flexing her acting chops lately: she recently appeared on CBS’s Young Sheldon in her recurring role and now she has signed on to do two Lifetime TV movies.
Deadline reports that Reba will star in and produce two movies for Lifetime. The first is Christmas In Tune for the network’s annual holiday slate and it will feature an original holiday song by her.
Filming will kick off this spring for Christmas In Tune which 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 in order, 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.
The second, which is not a holiday movie, is in development for 2022.
Reba 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.”
She posted a video to her Instagram recently while on the set of CBS’s Young Sheldon, “Connie and June are just so good together! @thisisanniepotts @youngsheldoncbs.”
