Reba McEntire to Reunite with “Reba” Co-Star Melissa Peterman in New Lifetime Movie

Get ready Reba fans…there will be a cast reunion on the set of a new Lifetime movie!

Reba McEntire is set to star alongside Reba‘s Melissa Peterman in the Lifetime movie inspired by the life of traveling circuit judge, Kim Wanker.

In addition to reuniting with her co-star and friend, Reba will also be joined by her real-life boyfriend, actor Rex Linn (CSI: Miami).

According to Deadline, “the film follows Kim Wheeler (played by McEntire, who also executive produces), an outspoken, firecracker lawyer who is appointed Judge of the 5th District of Nevada and is one of the few traveling judges left in America. After the reigning judge dies under suspicious circumstances, Kim finds herself covering a circuit that stretches between Las Vegas and Reno — a rugged, often desolate area where anything and everything can happen. With gavel in hand, she lays down the law with a no-nonsense brand of justice, that quickly earns her the nickname “The Hammer.” As the investigation of the former judge’s death heats up, Kim’s sister Kris (Peterman), who runs the local brothel, suddenly becomes the prime suspect, and Kim must work even harder to make certain the appropriate justice is served.”

Reba will be busy this year. She’s also joining the cast of Big Sky for season 3.
