WEEK IN WOMEN: Reba McEntire’s two upcoming Lifetime movies – Brandy McDonnell reports
Country Music Hall of Famer and Golden Globe-nominated actress Reba McEntire — along with her familiar powerhouse voice — is joining Lifetime’s 2021 original holiday movie slate as the star of Christmas in Tune, the first project in a two-picture deal that the multi-hyphenate recently signed with Lifetime to star in and produce films for the cable network.
Christmas In Tune will be a tentpole installment in Lifetime’s It’s a Wonderful Lifetime holiday lineup. The telefilm will focus on Belle, a young marketing executive who is in danger of losing her job. Desperate for ideas, Belle decides to reunite a famous singing duo for a charity Christmas concert. There’s only one problem: The singers are Belle’s parents, and they haven’t even spoken to each other in years. Soon the at-odds couple is helping Belle get her life in order — and, naturally, she begins her own romantic duet with the new man in her life.
Christmas in Tune is written by Juliet Giglio and Keith Giglio. The film is produced by Hartbreak Films with Paula Hart and McEntire serving as executive producers. Filming is set for this spring.
The second movie in Reba’s two-picture deal with Lifetime won’t be a yuletide title. It is reportedly in development for 2022. Continue reading on THE WEEK IN WOMEN.
