Though McEntire has been in sitcoms before, this time she’ll be taking on a drama, which will air on ABC. Though the project is currently unnamed, The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop on what it’ll be about.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, it’s “described as a Southern Gothic soap opera that is set in motion after a suspected act of terrorism happens at a Fourth of July parade in the small town of Oxblood, KY. The FBI sends a cocky agent of Middle Eastern descent to investigate. He teams with the mercurial local sheriff to uncover secrets far darker than either could have ever imagined.”
Sounds promising, to say the least!
