Country superstar Reba McEntire makes her first
foray into series television in this edgy comedy
that takes aim at the all-American family with a
spirited Southern look at suburban dysfunction.
The Hart family is in the midst of a divorce as
Texas soccer mom Reba watches her white-picket-fenced
world collapse before her very eyes. Her dentist
husband, Brock, is leaving her after what she thought
was 20 happy years of marriage for his impossibly
perky and unfortunately pregnant dental
hygienist, Barbra Jean.
The cherry on top of this bitter sundae is that
Reba's 17-year-old daughter Cheyenne is pregnant
by her boyfriend, the high school's dim-bulb football
star, Van. Rounding out the happy brood is 12-year-
old Kyra, who is greeting puberty with venom, and
9-year-old Jake, whose biggest concern is whether
his best friend can sleep over.
Determined to take some semblance of control back in
her upside-down-turned life, Reba makes a deft shift
to Plan B. She plots a new course, taking in her new
son-in-law Van to live with Cheyenne and their impending
child and trying to keep the husband-stealing future
stepmother of her children at arm's length.
So much for the Junior League.
They certainly aren't candidates for a Rockwell portrait,
but the Harts muddle through their domestic morass the
only way they know how - with brutal honesty
and bare-knuckled poise.
