Reba recently filmed the pilot for her new ABC sitcom Malibu Country with Lily Tomlin playing her mother, Lillie Mae. Tomlin actually named her character after her own mother, who lived in Nashville for awhile.

Lily calls Reba “funny” and “adorable” in a recent interview with The Tennessean. Matching Reba’s Southern accent for the show wasn’t a challenge either, since Lily’s family has so many Southern roots. She says, “It’s like second nature to me.”

In Malibu Country, Reba plays a woman who moves her three kids and her mother from Nashville to Malibu to get away from her cheating husband.
