The two real life best friends previously starred in Reba together, and have also both appeared on Young Sheldon, although they have yet to share a scene.

Rex Linn, Reba’s real boyfriend and who has also appeared in Young Sheldon, also stars in the new movie.

In a new interview, Reba revealed that there are plans for the movie to develop into a franchise.

“You know, it could have been a limited series. It could be a series. It could be movies, because Kim [her character] does have so many great stories to tell,” she shared. “Melissa said several times, ‘Oh, my gosh, we could do this again.’”

Here’s a summary: Kim Wheeler is an outspoken, firecracker lawyer who is appointed Judge of the 5th District of Nevada and is one of the few traveling judges left in America. After the reigning judge passes away under suspicious circumstances, Kim finds herself covering a circuit that stretches between Las Vegas and Reno — a rugged, often desolate area where anything and everything can happen.

With gavel in hand, she lays down the law with a no-nonsense brand of justice, that quickly earns her the nickname “The Hammer.” As the investigation of the former judge’s death heats up, Kim’s sister Kris (Peterman), who runs the local brothel, suddenly becomes the prime suspect, and Kim must work even harder to make certain the appropriate justice is served.

Kay Shioma Metchie will also star in the movie, premiering TONIGHT, January 7, at 8 p.m. on Lifetime.
