Reba McEntire has signed a two-movie deal with Lifetime, including a Christmas-themed movie that she will star-in and produce. McEntire is currently developing Christmas in Tune, a music-themed holiday movie that will also feature an original holiday song by McEntire. In addition, McEntire’s deal with Lifetime also includes a yet-to-be-announced non-holiday movie.
McEntire said, “I am thrilled to partner with Lifetime for a return to television movies! My fans and I enjoy their programming and loved watching the Reba show there for so many years.”
According to Lifetime, Christmas in Tune centers around the story of Belle, a marketing exec who is afraid she’s going to lose her job. The synopsis reads: “She decides to reunite a singing duo for a charity Christmas concert, but the problem is — the singers are actually her parents and they have not spoken to each other in years! Soon the at-odds couple is helping Belle get her life in order and she begins her own romantic duet with the new man in her life.” Casting for Christmas in Tune is currently underway, with filming expected to begin this Spring; a premiere date for the film has yet to be announced.
