ABC orders Reba McEntire pilot

Net also plucks half-hour from '70s Show' EPs

ABC ordered a pair of comedy pilots Wednesday including one starring Reba McEntire.

The actress/singer will reunite with Kevin Abbott, executive producer of the CW sitcom “Reba,” for “Malibu Country,” from ABC Studios.

The multi-camera half-hour follows a fictionalized version of McEntire who divorces her rock-star husband and moves her three kids and mom from Nashville to Malibu, where she tries to reignite her singing career and protect the family’s values.

Mindy Schultheis, Michael Hanel, Pam Williams, Dave Stewart and Narvel Blackstock are also attached as executive producers.

ABC also ordered “Prairie Dogs,” a single-camera half-hour from ABC Studios and “That ’70s Show” executive producers Jackie and Jeff Filgo.

“Dogs” is about an uncool cubicle worker who reaches out to a thief who steals his identity when he realizes the charismatic conman could help him change his life.
