Roseanne hopes for TV comeback
Back to the future? Roseanne has her sights set on a sitcom in which she is the matriarch of a family.
Roseanne Barr has teamed with one of her former sitcom producers, Caryn Mandabach, for a family comedy in which she would (again) play the matriarch. Mandabach has recently been producing for the BBC. In the U.S., she executive produces Showtime’s upcoming series Nurse Jackie, starring Edie Falco.
The Hollywood Reporter notes Jim Vallely (Arrested Development) is also attached to write the script for the project, which has been pitched to the FOX network.
After her nine-year run in on Roseanne, Barr fronted a syndicated talk show and a reality series for ABC.
