Reba McEntire and Melissa Peterman are reuniting! The two previously starred together in the sitcom Reba and have remained friends ever since. However, their characters in a new Lifetime film won’t always get along as well as they do in real life.
Reba and Melissa will star in the upcoming TV movie The Hammer, which says it is a made-up story inspired by a real judge. Reba is set to play Kim Wheeler, a lawyer who is appointed Judge of the 5th District of Nevada. Things get tricky when her sister Kris, played by Melissa, becomes the prime suspect in the murder of Kim’s predecessor.
