Roseanne Barr Returns to Prime Time with Sitcom for NBC

Actress is working on a pilot, which she will co-produce with Steven Greener

Roseanne Barr is working on a project that will bring her back to prime time, on NBC, it has emerged. The star is now developing a pilot for a sitcom that will be her big comeback vehicle.

Further details on the sitcom are not available right now, but TV Guide has confirmed that the pilot was in the works.

If the bosses at NBC like what they see, they will hopefully order a full season, if not actually more – which didn’t happen with “Downwardly Mobile,” which Barr made last year and 20th TV produced.

“Barr and Steven Greener, who teamed up for Barr's Lifetime reality show, Roseanne's Nuts, will co-produce,” TV Guide notes.

In the meantime, Barr will be seen on NBC on three upcoming episodes of the hit series “The Office,” where she will be playing a talent agent.
