As part of the pact, Barr will reteam with Steven Greener, who produced her Lifetime reality series Roseanne’s Nuts and will executive produce the new series alongside the actress-comedian. Roseanne’s Nuts, set on her macadamia nut farm in Hawaii, ran for one 16-episode season in 2011.
Barr starred in Downwardly Mobile last pilot season, alongside her Roseanne onscreen husband John Goodman, as the proprietor of a mobile home park who doubled as a surrogate mother to all the unique people who live there in a challenging economy. The comedy was set up at NBC and 20th Television, and NBC produced the pilot, but the project did not move forward. Greener, whose credits include The Bernie Mac Show, also was attached to Mobile as an EP.
NBC is making quick use of Barr’s talents, having cast her as talent agent Carla Fern in a three-episode arc on The Office, where she’ll help office manager Andy Bernard (Ed Helms) realize his showbiz dream. She begins filming this week on the comedy, which will wrap its nine-season run in May.
Barr is repped by Paradigm.
