Roseanne Barred from Spinoff

ABC has ordered 10 episodes of a spinoff of Roseanne — without its eponymous star Roseanne Barr, reports CNBC. In May, the network cancelled a revival of the original show, which generated a revenue of $45 million in two months, after Barr posted a racist tweet about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett. Barr agreed to forgo creative or financial participation in the spinoff in order to save the jobs of 200 cast and crew members, per The Guardian.
