One of the biggest television stars of the 1990s, who had a long-running prime-time comedy, is set to return to sitcoms, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Roseanne Barr, whose hit sitcom “Roseanne” aired on ABC from 1988-1997, has a project in the works called “Downwardly Mobile.” The show is similar in to "Roseanne" in that it will feature a blue-collar family living in bleak economic times.

The series, from 20th Century Fox Television, has Steven Greener, the executive producer of Barr’s current Lifetime reality show "Roseanne’s Nuts," attached as an executive producer.

The show will be shopped to TV networks after it taps a showrunner.
