Professing her love for Christmas movies and admitting she watches them “all year long if I can find one.” Reba McEntire knows just the right ingredients to make a holiday season production of her very own.
In Reba's case, it takes a splash of holiday songs, with a dash of rekindled love added to the story line, and of course the perfect punny title. Mix it all up and you get Christmas In Tune, which surely will not disappoint.
Talking to ABC about "kicking Christmas off in grand style on Lifetime.” The Country legend talked about teaming up with Dukes of Hazzard star John Schneider, noting he “was so much fun to work with.”
Speaking of her co-star, in regards to that dash of rekindled love we mentioned earlier — here’s a brief synopsis and clip of what to expect;
Years after their personal and professional breakup, the singing duo of Georgia (Reba McEntire) and Joe Winter (John Schneider) agree to reunite after their daughter, Belle (played by Candice King), asks them to participate in a Christmas Charity concert, only to find themselves getting back in tune on stage and off.
As you can see, it’ll ironically take some time for winter chills to turn to warm up the vibes between Georgia and Joe. Which Reba revealed was quite the opposite on set, since they filmed the holiday treat in the heat of summer.
“We filmed it in June. It was hot, as you can imagine. Even when we were inside, the air conditioning couldn’t keep us cool enough with all of our scarves and sweaters and things like that on, we were sweating up a storm,” she describes. However, despite the blazing temperatures, Reba assures the film supplies plenty of holiday cheer. Adding, “but it’s a sweet movie, and I hope everybody enjoys it.”
Christmas in Tune premieres on Lifetime Friday, November 26 at 8PM ET.
