The multi-camera sitcom, which is set in a mobile home community, will be written by Barr's longtime boyfriend Johnny Argent and former Roseanne executive producer Eric Gilliland.

Comedienne Barr won numerous awards for her role on the long-running show Roseanne, which was recently declared one of the 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time by TV Guide.
