The program will follow Barr as she runs a 40-acre nut farm on Hawaii’s Big Island along with her writer-musician boyfriend Johnny Argent and her son, Jake. She “uses a take-no-prisoners approach in shaping a Utopian dream for herself and her loved ones,” promises the release.

“I’m coming back down to earth, and keeping it real,” Barr said in a statement. “They’ve said ‘Roseanne’s nuts’ for years, and now I’m going to make that a reality – I’m all about nuts now, macadamia nuts!”

“Roseanne Barr is an undeniable force of nature and the idea of following her in this unique premise excited us from the get-go,” said Nancy Dubuc, Lifetime president and GM. “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. We are thrilled she will make her long-awaited return to television on Lifetime.”

Lifetime ordered sixteen half-hour episodes of the as-yet-untitled series which will debut sometime in 2011.

Barr starred in ABC’s Roseanne show from 1988 to 1997. What do you think about Barr’s return to TV?
