MALIBU COUNTRY

SERIES PREMIERE: November, 2012
SERIES FINALE: March 22, 2013

Country music superstar/actress Reba returns to television as a wife and mother whose world is turned upside-down when she discovers that her country music legend husband has a cheatin’ heart. On her way to becoming a country star herself, Reba put her career on hold to raise a family. Husband Bobby always emphasized family values in his music, but with the very public discovery of his numerous affairs, Reba decides to not stand by her man. Now, with a divorce pending, Reba packs up her sharp-tongued southern mother, Lillie Mae (Lily Tomlin), and her two kids and U-Hauls it straight to sunny California to begin a new chapter in life. Leaving Nashville in the rear view mirror, they start over at their Malibu residence – the last remaining asset they have, and Bobby’s former secret love nest. Once the most popular boy in his Nashville high school, Reba’s teenaged son, Cash (Justin Prentice), finds himself feeling positively average compared to the good lookking, affluent Malibu boys – a fate worse than death! On the other hand, Reba’s teen daughter, June (Juliette Angelo), never really fit in with her peers. In Malibu she blends in perfectly and finds a new best friend in Sage, an openly gay neighborhood boy who embraces his sexuality. Tough-as-nails mom Lillie Mae discovers the serenity of Southern California living and fully embraces her new, laid-back, relaxed lifestyle. But Reba learns relocating to Malibu is going to be quite a challenge to her traditional southern values. The West Coast seems like the polar opposite of Music City, and she feels like an outsider. Her gregarious and very liberal new neighbor and Sage’s stepmother, Kim (Sara Rue), doesn’t have many friends and immediately attaches herself to Reba, enthusiastically offering to mentor her in becoming a little less country and a bit more California cool. When Reba discovers that trying to revive her career is going to be an uphill battle, she befriends Geoffrey (Jai Rodriguez), the assistant to her new music agent. With his help and unorthodox methods, she might yet have a chance to become a chart topper. Still, in the end it’s family that matters most to Reba, as each member of hers learns to view this new Malibu lifestyle as a chance to begin anew.
