Roseanne Barr Returning To Primetime? NBC Developing New Show Starring Roseanne
Now that Roseanne’s done campaigning for the presidency she’s getting ready to return to what she does best: Television. NBC and Roseanne Barr are teaming up to create a new show for the network.
The LA Times reports that Barr’s last attempt to create a show, Downwardly Mobile, didn’t make it too far at NBC. It’s unclear what the new show will be about but the network is apparently ready to take another chance with the comedian.
MSN reports that before Roseanne’s new show hits the air (if it ever does) the comedian will appear on another NBC sitcom: The Office.
Barr will play a talent agent who tries to help Andy (Ed Helms) break into Hollywood.
This won’t be Roseanne’s first trip back to TV land recently. The comedian was roasted by Comedy Central earlier this year and in 2011 she starred in a reality show, Roseanne’s Nuts.
Steven Greener, who worked on the Lifetime series with Roseanne, will also produce Roseanne’s new show.
