The new series is “described as a Southern Gothic soap opera that is set in motion after a suspected act of terrorism happens at a Fourth of July parade in the small town of Oxblood, KY. The FBI sends a cocky agent of Middle Eastern descent to investigate. He teams with the mercurial local sheriff to uncover secrets far darker than either could have ever imagined,” according to THR.

Reba last starred on television in the ABC comedy series Malibu Country, which lasted one season from 2012-2013.
