Roseanne Barr is reuniting with an old colleague to bring a new sitcom to the small screen.
The actress, according to the Hollywood Reporter, is reuniting with Roseanne producer Caryn Mandabach in hopes of recreating what has been a successful formula for her in the past — playing the mother in a family sitcom. Her original sitcom ran on ABC from 1988-1997, garnering high ratings and accolades for its blunt, All In The Family-esque tackling of social issues of the day.
Also connected to the nascent sitcom, which has been pitched to Fox, is Arrested Development’s Jim Vallely. He will write the script for the project and serve as executive producer alongside Barr, Mandabach and Maggie Rowe. (Photo: Wenn)
