“[ABC] had two notes for us: ‘Expand upon this and expand upon that.’ It wasn’t ‘Take that out’ or ‘Fix [this].’ We’re thrilled to pieces.... Hopefully... ABC will say it’s a go, and we’ll start filming in middle of July,” Reba tells Cody.

The singer turned actress plays the role of “Ruby Adair,” a sheriff of a small town in Kentucky, who finds her views challenged when a young FBI agent of Middle Eastern decent is sent to help her solve a crime.

“I’m a dark character,” Reba adds. “I’ve got a lot of flaws and demons, and I’m having a lot of problems in my personal life. My town is being disrupted and I’m having to deal with it all. I’m under a lot of stress.”

The series marks Reba’s first dramatic role and the latest since her sitcom Malibu Country was cancelled in 2013.
