The former sitcom queen/comedienne reinvents herself as … a macadamia farmer?
Outspoken comedienne Roseanne Barr is poised to come back to the airwaves, courtesy of the Lifetime Network.
Lifetime announced on Monday afternoon that it has ordered 16 episodes of a new, unscripted series from the 58-year-old former "Roseanne" star. The series will follow Barr as she attempts to run a macadamia and livestock farm in Hawaii.
The as-yet-untitled series, which will also feature Barr's writer-musician boyfriend Johnny Argent and son Jake, will debut later this year.
“Roseanne Barr is an undeniable force of nature and the idea of following her in this unique premise excited us from the get-go,” Nancy Dubuc, Lifetime Networks’ President and General Manager, said in a statement. “Roseanne is funny and brutally-honest, and our audience will relate to her decision to go on this adventure and create an entirely new life for herself."
The series will be produced 3 Ball Productions/Eyeworks USA ("The Biggest Loser," "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition") and Full Moon & High Tide Productions.
