Lifetime goes nuts with Roseanne Barr

Half-hour reality show to follow comedian on her farm

Lifetime is putting Roseanne Barr out to pasture — on a reality skein to be shot on her farm in Hawaii.

Cabler has ordered 16 half-hour episodes of an untitled reality skein that will follow Barr and her boyfriend, Johnny Argent, as they run a macadamia and livestock farm on the big island of Hawaii. Skein is set to premiere later this year.

“They’ve said, ‘Roseanne’s nuts’ for years, and now I’m going to make that a reality,” Barr said. “I’m all about nuts now — macadamia nuts.”

Series will be produced by 3 Ball Prods./Eyeworks USA. Barr, J.D. Roth, Todd A. Nelson, Brant Pinvidic and Steven Greener are exec producers.

Greenlight for the Barr show comes a week after network topper Nancy Dubuc ordered two detective dramas for the femme-skewing cabler, “Exit 19” and “Against the Wall,” which upped the net’s original scripted series to four.

Barr hasn’t appeared much on television in recent years. Her eponymous sitcom ran for nine seasons on ABC from 1988-97.

Dubuc said: “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.”
