The marriage of Roseanne Barr and Tom Arnold was a tumultuous affair that provided the public with a lot of raucous entertainment. For those working around them at the time, it was also a crazy adventure.
Emmy Award-winning producer and screenwriter David Fury worked with the former couple on "The Jackie Thomas Show," which they co-created in 1992 while "Roseanne" was still a top-rated program. On HuffPost Live Thursday, Fury said writing for that sitcom was one of his most memorable projects because there was "something really exhilarating about being in the eye of the storm that was the craziness of those two."
"It was insane," Fury told HuffPost Live's Jacob Soboroff. "Coke-fueled rages, people fired left and right, there were fights between Tom Arnold and Julia Louis Dreyfus parking in his spot. You can't be thrown into show business more violently than working for Roseanne and Tom."
"The Jackie Thomas Show" was Fury's first writing job in Hollywood. He went on to work on popular shows like "Pinky and The Brain," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Lost" and "24."
Barr is rumored to be working on a primetime pilot for NBC.
