Reba McEntire has lined up her next acting gig. The singer is attached to star in, and executive produce, a new NBC series in the works based on the hit movie “Fried Green Tomatoes.”
Legendary producer Norman Lear is executive producing the project, which will follow the descendants of the original movie and novel.
Reba will play a present-day Idgie Threaadgoode in the modern telling of the story, who returns to the Whistle Stop café after a decade. There she must face her estranged daughter, the fate of the café, as well as a “life-changing secret.”
