Down on the Farm: Roseanne Barr Launches Lifetime Reality Show

Funnygal Roseanne Barr is launching her own unique brand of reality show — about life on her “fully-functional, 40-acre farm” in Hawaii!

Lifetime has ordered a 16-episode docu-series about the comedienne’s life outside the Hollywood spotlight, which just so happens to involve running a macadamia and live stock farm on Hawaii’s Big Island. Barr’s longtime boyfriend, writer Johnny Argent, and her son Jake will costar.

“Roseanne Barr is an undeniable force of nature and the idea of following her in this unique premise excited us from the get-go, ” Lifetime president and general manager, Nancy Dubuc, said in a statement Monday. “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.”

Barr’s secret tropical lifestyle was first revealed during her appearance on Monday’s episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

How do you feel about Roseanne’s return to TV? Are you eager to experience life on the farm?

  • Why doesn’t this article have any specifics about when the show is expected to air? Even if the date hasn’t been set, it would be nice to know a season or year. Have they started filming? This looks kind of like a copied and pasted press release.
