NBC is going to get another project with Roseanne Barr off the ground. Barr will produce and star in the new series for Universal TV.
According to Variety, Barr signed a deal with the studio to develop a new comedy. There aren’t any plot details for the new project yet, but her Roseanne's Nuts collaborator Steven Greener will co-produce.
This new series isn’t the only part of the deal, though. It also includes a guest role on some of the final episodes of The Office, reports The Wrap. Barr will star in three episodes as a talent agent to help Andy Bernard (Ed Helms) start a new career.
The news comes a year after Barr nearly made it back to network television with NBC’s Downwardly Mobile, which would have reunited her with her Roseanne co-star John Goodman. However, it never went beyond the pilot stage.
Barr is best remembered for her long-running ABC series, which ran from 1988 to 1997, which won an Emmy and three Golden Globes. She later had a talk show that ran for two years.
