NBC Is Developing Another Roseanne Sitcom


Last season, NBC ordered a pilot called Downwardly Mobile starring Roseanne Barr and John Goodman as a couple living in a trailer park. The show didn’t make it past the pilot stage, but the network is now taking another stab at developing a new show around Barr, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She’ll produce and develop the series alongside Steven Greener, whom she worked with on her one-season-and-out Lifetime reality show Roseanne’s Nuts last year. No title or plotline has been announced. Roseanne Barr recently filmed an episode of IFC’s Portlandia and will appear in a three-episode arc in The Office’s final stretch of episodes as a talent manager who helps Andy Bernard pursue his dreams of being a star. Will Roseanne’s new show be an Office spin-off about her talking Andy Bernard to Los Angeles to manage his singing career? Definitely not, but I can dream, can’t I?
