Roseanne BarrConfession time: In my youth I used to watch a great many original Lifetime movies. I don’t know why. It’s something I’m working out. The point is, I haven’t watched Lifetime in more than a decade, but the Network for Women (and formerly, me) just signed up Roseanne Barr to star in her own reality series. And I might just give that shit a chance.

According to Deadline, the as-of-yet untitled 16-episode show will highlight Roseanne’s, “newfound life managing a fully-functional 40-acre macadamia and live stock farm on Hawaii’s Big Island alongside her long-time writer-musician boyfriend Johnny Argent and son Jake.”

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

The announcement comes as Roseanne makes her long-awaited return to the Oprah show (video below), where she gives the audience a tour of her nut farm. Go here to check it out.

So, what do you think? Are you going to watch Roseanne’s new show?
