Roseanne Barr among NBC pilot orders

Peacock picks trio of comedies

NBC ordered three comedy pilots Monday, including a potential comeback vehicle for Roseanne Barr.

Barr would star in “Downwardly Mobile” as the proprietor of a mobile home park and surrogate mother to all of the unique people who live there in a challenging economy.

“Mobile” is from 20th Century Fox TV with executive producers Eric Gilliland, John Argent and Barr. Gilliland was executive producer of the original “Roseanne,” a smash hit for ABC during the 1990s.

NBC also ordered “Animal Kingdom,” a single-camera office comedy centered on a “House”-like veterinarian who loves animals but usually hates their owners. From Universal Television and American Work, the half-hour is executive produced by Brian Gatewood, Alex Tanaka, Scot Armstrong and Ravi Nandan.

The third project is also a single-camera production from Universal TV: “Go On,” in which an irreverent yet charming sportscaster tries to move on from a loss and reluctantly finds surprising solace from the members of his mandatory group therapy sessions. Executive producer Scott Silveri is also an NBC veteran of “Friends” and its spinoff “Joey”; he most recently cracked the Peacock lineup with the short-lived “Perfect Couples.”
