DESCRIPTION:
(from ABC's press release, March 2018) Rebecca (Annaleigh Ashford) left her family's Texas ranch resort years ago to work at the upscale St. Regis hotel in New York, but after being beckoned home by her smooth-talking cowboy dad Beau (John Laroquette), she's back and ready to utilize her big city tactics to turn their rustic ranch into a destination resort oozing Southern hospitality. However, getting her sister Leanne (sweet as a honeybee but with double the stinger) and brother Roy (a sickly, small man-child who somehow still inherited his dad's lothario ways) to fall in line with her vision will be the real thorn in Rebecca's side. And that's going to be even harder once Beau reveals a life-changing family secret.
