A Whole Lot Of Roseanne Could Be Coming Your Way

What's wrong with you? Didn't your mother teach you to SHARE?

Roseanne Barr is working on another TV comeback, this time with a big NBC deal.

According to Deadline, Roseanne and NBC are near a deal for a new sitcom that would receive a straight-to-series 10 episode order with the popular 10/90 model. The deal, which is similar to what FX gave Charlie Sheen for “Anger Management,” allows the network to test out the sitcom with the first 10 episodes. Should they prove a hit, 90 more will be ordered through a syndication deal.

Roseanne’s latest comeback attempt is a collaboration with “Nurse Jackie” co-creator Linda Wallem, The Hollywood Reporter also reported. Roseanne previously attempted a sitcom comeback co-starring opposite John Goodman in the “Downwardly Mobile” pilot for the 2012-2013 TV season.

FX recently ordered two sitcoms, one with George Lopez headlining and the other with Martin Lawrence and Kelsey Grammer, following the 10/90 model.

Sheen’s sitcom on FX started off strong in the ratings. The series premiere had more than 5 million viewers. Now in its second season, some “Anger Management” episodes have fallen below 1 million viewers.
