abc and reba mcentire and 'malibu'. ABC has bought a script with a put-pilot commitment from ABC Studios with Reba McEntire attached to star.

"Malibu Country" will be written by Kevin Abbott, who was executive producer on McEntire's previous TV effort, the WB sitcom "Reba," which ran for six seasons beginning in 2001.Abbott will executive produce with McEntire; her manager, Narvel Blackstock; Mindy Schultheis and Michael Hanel of Acme Prods., Pam Williams of Laura Ziskin Prods., and veteran musician Dave Stewart.

"Malibu" is a multi-camera comedy in which McEntire's character divorces her "good ol boy" rock-star husband after he cheats on her and burns through most of their money. She moves her family from Nashville to the only asset she has left-- a little house in Malibu.

There she'll try to reignite her own singing career and keep herself and her three kids from being corrupted by the materialistic and rarified Malibu world she now calls home.

ABC Studios also sold ABC a script for an epic-fantasy drama reimagining "Beauty and the Beast. "Human Target" executive producer Jonathan E. Steinberg will write and executive produce with Mojo Films' Gary Fleder and Mary Beth Basile.
