"Malibu Country" on ABC is a comedy series premiering in fall 2012.

When Reba Gallagher (Reba) discovers that her husband, Bobby, (Jeffrey Nordling) a country music legend, has a cheatin' heart, her world is turned upside down. Reba dreamt of becoming a country star herself, but put her career on hold to raise a family. Now she's questioning all of that, big-time. With the ink on her divorce barely dry, Reba packs up her sharp-tongued mother, Lillie May (Lily Tomlin), her two kids and the U-Haul and heads for sunny California to begin a new chapter. Leaving Nashville in the rear view, they start over at their Malibu residence — the last remaining asset they have. Reba gets to know her new open and loving neighbor Kim (Sara Rue) and her son, Sage, but also discovers that relocation to Southern California is going to be quite an adjustment for a traditional southern belle: the West Coast seems like the polar opposite of Music City, and Reba feels like an outsider. Still, with the support of her family she sets about finding her voice, jump-starting her music career with the help of her new music agent, Geoffrey (Jai Rodriguez), and embracing this chance to begin again.

The cast includes country music superstar Reba McEntire ("Reba," "Tremors") as Reba, Sara Rue ("Rules of Engagement," "Less Than Perfect") as Kim, Justin Prentice as Cash, Juliette Angelo as June, Jai Rodriguez ("Bones," "How I Met Your Mother," one of the original hosts of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy") as Geoffrey and Lily Tomlin ("Eastbound and Down," "Damages," "Desperate Housewives," "West Wing," "Nine to Five," "All of Me," "Nashville") as Lillie May.

"Malibu Country" is from Kevin Abbott ("Last Man Standing," "My Name Is Earl," "Reba") who executive produces along with Michael Hanel & Mindy Schultheis, Reba McEntire & Narvel Blackstock, Dave Stewart & Pam Williams, John Pasquin. The pilot for "Malibu Country" was directed by John Pasquin. The series is from ABC Studios.
