Reba McEntire Reportedly Attached to New TV Series Based on “Fried Green Tomatoes”

Reba McEntire will star in a new NBC television series based on the 1987 novel, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, according to Variety. The book was the basis for the 1991 movie, Fried Green Tomatoes, which starred Kathy Bates, Jessica Tandy, Mary Stuart Masterson, Mary-Louise Parker and Cicely Tyson.

According to Variety, the hour-long drama project is described as a “modernization of the novel and movie that explores the lives of descendants from the original work.”

In addition to starring as Idgie Threadgoode, Reba will serve as an executive producer with Norman Lear.

Of course, Reba is no stranger to TV. She starred as Reba Nell Hart, the wisecracking character on her long-running sitcom, Reba. The sitcom aired 127 episode over six seasons from 2001 to 2007 on The WB and The CW.
