Reba plays a real no-nonsense judge in a new Lifetime movie that she executive produced, called The Hammer. It stars her boyfriend, Rex Linn, and her Reba sitcom buddy Melissa Peterman.

Reba. shared the release of the trailer for the new movie on her social media accounts. As you can see, she does some serious fighting, gun-slinging, and bench sitting in it.

The film is inspired by the life of traveling circuit judge Kim Wanker. McEntire plays traveling judge Wheeler, and the press release calls her character a “firecracker” who “lays down the law with a no-nonsense brand of justice.”

In the final scene in the trailer, Reba’s character asks a cop, “Would you say I’m a loose cannon?’ And the cop responds, “No, not to your face.”

Reba captioned the trailer on Instagram, “Reba McEntire’s #TheHammer Coming in 2023 on @lifetimetv.”
