Roseanne Barr to guest star on 'The Office,' developing sitcom for NBC
Roseanne Barr is gearing up for a return to television with a guest spot on "The Office" and she is reportedly working on a sitcom for NBC.
Barr will guest star on "The Office" as a talent agent named Carla Fern, according to The Associated Press. Barr's scenes taped on Wednesday, January 30. Fern agrees to help office manager Andy Barnard, played by Ed Helms, realize his show business dream.
Barr is currently doing a stand-up comedy act in Las Vegas but took a break to appear on the show, which is in its final season after nine years.
The comedian is also reportedly developing a sitcom for NBC, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Barr will star in the sitcom and produce it as well.
The news comes a year after the network passed on a pilot by Barr called "Downwardly Mobile," which would have reunited the comedian with John Goodman, who played her on-screen husband on "Roseanne" for nine seasons from 1988 to 1997.
Barr previously made headlines last year when she ran for President of the United States under the California-based Peace and Freedom Party in California, Florida and Colorado. Her running mate was anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, who famously camped outside of George W. Bush's Texas ranch to protest the Iraq War, where her son was killed.
