Roseanne Barr's Twitter

Roseanne Barr is not happy with the executives over at NBC - where she was developing her comeback television series - and she evidently wants the internet to know the extent of her anger.

The comedienne took to social networking site Twitter to unleash her disapproval with the NBC suits, pointing out that she gets treated differently than younger women in the industry, despite her career: "women who have achieved far less than me are allowed to write their own shows, bit I’m constantly forced 2 work w a censoring ‘show runner.’"

The showrunner Barr calls out is Nurse Jackie showrunner Linda Wallem, who was signed on to work with Barr on her NBC project. The untitled comedy show was ordered by the broadcasting giant for 10 episodes, which would lead to a 90 episode deal if the first handful are successful. Despite that, Barr was clearly unhappy with how her series was developing and took to her Twitter account to vent:

"everything-every word I turned in to nbc and nbc studios was censored and thrown out-they wanted ‘my brand’ w/o me in it. Worse than matt w... I’ve ben disrespected and ripped off by Hollywood. f*** hollywood. f*** every stupid p***k there.  Misogynist classist white colonial f***... f*** these hollywood anti semite b*****d jewish women loathing f***tards… the women in hollywood cannot fall to their knees to suck d*** fast enough."

There's no word as to which stage of development the NBC show is in, but it seems from Barr's series of tweets that it is unlikely to occur at all.
