Roseanne Barr is looking to return to primetime.
The star of ABC's long-running sitcom has teamed with one of the "Roseanne" producers, Caryn Mandabach, for a family comedy in which she would play the matriarch.
Jim Vallely ("Arrested Development") is attached to pen the script for the project, which has been pitched to Fox. He would executive produce with Mandabach, Maggie Rowe and Barr.
After her eponymous sitcom ended its nine-year run in 1997, Barr fronted a syndicated talk show and a reality series for ABC. Since then, she has made numerous guest appearances on a variety of primetime sitcoms, including "3rd Rock from the Sun," "The Nanny" and "My Name is Earl." Now she's returning to her scripted comedy roots.
