"REBA" HITS A HIGH NOTE WHEN COUNTRY LEGEND DOLLY PARTON MAKES A SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCE

Burbank, CA January 22, 2005

Country music superstars and friends Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire come together for the first time in series television for an upcoming episode of The WB's hit comedy REBA. The announcement was made today by "Reba" star and co-executive producer Reba McEntire at the Winter 2005 Television Critics' Association Press Tour.

In a role that is being created especially for her, Parton's character will be pitted against Reba Hart (McEntire), who will find herself without a job and starting a new career in real estate. The episode will tape before a live audience in February to air later in the season.

"I have respected Dolly, both professionally and personally, for my entire career, so having her on our show and playing opposite her will be the thrill of a lifetime," said Ms. McEntire.

Throughout a career that has spanned four decades, the multi-award-winning Parton has contributed countless treasures to the world of music entertainment, including such songs as "Jolene," "Coat of Many Colors" and "I Will Always Love You;" acting performances such as her Oscar-nominated film debut in "9 to 5," as well as roles in the motion pictures "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" and "Steel Magnolias;" her 1994 autobiography "Dolly: My Life and Other Unfinished Business" and her Smoky Mountain heritage-preserving entertainment park, located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, just miles from where she grew up.

"Reba" was created by Allison M. Gibson ("Home Improvement," "Boy Meets World"). Kevin Abbott ("Roseanne") serves as executive producer with Mindy Schultheis and Michael Hanel ("Titus") and Matt Berry for Twentieth Century Fox Television.
