Straight from the funny farm, it's Roseanne Barr!

No, seriously, she lives on a farm now – a fully functional, 40-acre macadamia nut and livestock farm on Hawaii's Big Island, which will be the setting for her new unscripted reality series, premiering later this year on Lifetime.

The show will follow the Emmy-winning comedian, 58, and her long-time boyfriend Johnny Argent and son Jake as they make a new life for themselves in this unusual setting.

"They've said 'Roseanne's nuts' for years, and now I'm going to make that a reality," Barr says in a statement. "I'm all about nuts now. Macadamia nuts!"



Lifetime has ordered 16 half-hour episodes of the as-yet-untitled docu-series, and promises "a funny, outrageous and unfiltered look at the adventures of one of television's greatest stars transitioning into a new life that is a far cry from Los Angeles," according to a release.

So, tell us below, are you excited for this offbeat new series?
