If you look very carefully on your TV listings, you'll see word that Roseanne Barr is heading to NBC. How is that so, you ask? Her new sitcom, Downwardly Mobile, has been purchased by the Peacock network with a script commitment plus penalty. Barr, who's Lifetime reality series Roseanne's Nuts only lasted one season, co-created the project, about a working class family and friends living in a mobile home community, with boyfriend John Argent and Eric Gilliland.
With television's leading blue collar lady back on the dial, this would mark her first scripted project since Roseanne ended in 1997 after running for nine seasons on ABC. It will be interesting to see if she can still connect with viewers after all these years, but with all the stresses we're facing on the daily, we think that audiences will relate to the controversial figure's new storyline. Even today, there are few television shows that represent the current struggling masses, so will you tune into Downwardly Mobile when it airs on NBC?
