Reba McEntire’s ABC sitcom cancelled after one season
Network renews the drama “Nashville,” set in Music City
Reba McEntire’s ABC sitcom “Malibu Country” has been cancelled by the network after just one season, according to Zap2It.com and other media outlets. In happier news, ABC has renewed the music-filled drama “Nashville” for a second season.
McEntire starred in “Mailbu Country” as a woman who moves her family from Nashville to Malibu after her husband, a country music star, cheats on her. While in California, she tries to re-start her own singing career while raising two teenagers. Lily Tomlin co-starred as the mother of McEntire’s character.
The singer and her husband and manager, Narvel Blackstock, were executive producers of the show, along with musician Dave Stewart of the duo Eurythmics, who also created the series.
McEntire had better luck with her previous series, “Reba,” which had a similar premise and ran from 2001 to 2007 on the WB for its first five seasons, and The CW in its final year.
The more successful “Nashville,” meanwhile, is a nighttime soap set in the country music business and starring Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere as country music star rivals.
