Roseanne Barr is teaming with NBC for another attempted TV comeback.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Barr and Steven Greener have signed a deal with Universal Television to develop, produce and star in a new TV series.

Barr, who starred in "Roseanne" for nine seasons on ABC, attempted a scripted TV comeback last season. In "Downwardly Mobile," Barr co-starred opposite her "Roseanne" husband John Goodman as the owners of a mobile home park. The comedy didn't make it past pilot stage at the Peacock network.

Prior to her attempts to get back into scripted TV, Barr starred in Lifetime's low-rated reality series "Roseanne's Nuts." The series followed Barr and her partner Johnny Argent on their macadamia nut farm.

Coming up, Barr will appear in the final season of "The Office" as a talent agent who works with Andy (Ed Helms).
