John Goodman Downwardly MobileRoseanne Barr‘s NBC pilot Downwardly Mobile is looking more like a reboot of her classic ’90s sitcom with each passing day — not that there’s anything wrong with that.

To wit, she’s thisclose to casting her Roseanne leading man, John Goodman, to co-star in the comedy, which stars Barr as the proprietor of a mobile home park and surrogate mother to all of the unique people who live there in a challenging economy.

Goodman will play a man who works at the park and has a buddy relationship with Barr’s character, according to our sister site Deadline.com.

The prospective series also features a healthy Roseanne pedigree behind the scenes. Eric Gilliland, who was an EP on Roseanne, will serve as showrunner, and the sitcom’s longtime director, Gail Mancuso, will helm the pilot.
