Reba McEntire, Carol Burnett return to TV

Reba McEntire is no stranger to television with a past in sitcoms, "Reba," short lived ABC sitcom "Malibu Country," and guest appearances on Freeform's "Baby Daddy" and ABC's "Last Man Standing."

The show will follow a cocky FBI agent of Middle Eastern descent sent to work with the local sheriff of this Southern Gothic town, played by Reba McEntire. Together they will uncover the town's dark secrets. No filming has occurred. If given the go-ahead from ABC, the pilot will film in March, followed by another round of waiting until the upfronts that will determine if the drama will go to series. If picked up, the show will film around the fall, or January of next year.

TV legend Carol Burnett eyes a return to television with a pilot order from ABC. "Household Name" will be executive produced by Amy Poehler, and written by Michael Saltzman. "Household Name" will follow a family as they get a chance to buy their dream home, with one condition: they have to live with the previous owner.
