Roseanne Barr plotting primetime return with family comedy

Roseanne Barr could be returning to primetime. According to The Hollywood Reporter, she’s joined forces with one of her former Roseanne producers, Caryn Mandabach, to develop a family comedy that has been pitched to Fox. Jim Vallely (Arrested Development) will pen the script. Barr would executiveproduce with Mandabach, Vallely, and Maggie Rowe. Last year, EW marked the 20th anniversary of Roseanne with an oral history of the show.
