Roseanne Barr’s dispatches from her Hawaiian nut farm, first a book, now a Lifetime TV series

The Lifetime network liked what it saw of Roseanne Barr's new life and book, and ordered 16 half-hour episodes of an untitled "docu-series" about this new chapter in her life running a 40-acre macadamia and livestock farm on Hawaii's big island. Her series is currently untitled, but will air later in 2011.

Quotes from the press release:

“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 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. We are thrilled she will make her long-awaited return to television on Lifetime.”

Roseanne added: “I’m coming back down to earth, and keeping it real. They’ve said ‘Roseanne’s nuts’ for years, and now I’m going to make that a reality – I’m all about nuts now, macadamia nuts!”

The untitled Roseanne Barr series is produced by 3 Ball Productions/Eyeworks USA and Full Moon & High Tide Productions, with Roseanne Barr, JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson, Brant Pinvidic, and Steven Greener on board as executive producers, and  Jake Pentland as producer.
