Reba McEntire to star in Lifetime holiday movie ‘Christmas in Tune’

Reba McEntire is setting her sights on Lifetime.

The famed singer-actress has signed a two-picture deal with the network, according to a press release, and will produce and star in both films.

The first of the two movies, “Christmas in Tune,” will follow marketing executive Belle, who chooses to reunite a musical duo — made up of her estranged parents — for a Christmas charity concert. Belle herself will even find romance along the way as well.

According to the release, the movie is written by Juliet and Keith Giglio (“Dear Christmas”) and will be produced by Hartbreak Pictures. McEntire, 65, and Paula Hart (“Once Upon a Main Street”) will executive produce.
