Reba McEntire is making a comeback.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC has ordered "Malibu Country," a sitcom pilot written by and starring the country music legend. The show, if picked up, would follow McEntire as a woman who moves her children away from her cheating husband in Nashville and seeks to revive her singing career in the very different climes of Malibu.

"Malibu Country" would also mark McEntire's first full-time foray into TV since her show "Reba" ended in 2007. That show ran for six seasons on The WB and The CW networks. McEntire has since made appearances in the short-lived series "Better With You" and "Working Class."

ABC has also ordered "Prairie Dogs," a single camera sitcom from Jackie and Jeff Filgo, who previously wrote for "That 70's Show" and "The New Adventures of Old Christine." The story centers on a lowly cubicle worker who has his identity stolen, only to like the fake life he's been given more than the boring one he was living.
