This week, REELZ does a deep dive into the life and career of Roseanne Barr with "Roseanne Barr: Kicked Out of Hollywood."

The special takes a raw and unfiltered look at the comic legend's rise to fame in the 1980s to the eventual fall of America’s Domestic Goddess, as it asks if her career downfall was due to cancel culture.

Featured in the documentary are personal accounts from Barr and her boyfriend Johnny Argent, as well as celebrity interviews with Howie Mandel, Mo'Nique and Bill Maher.

The tell-all doc also takes audiences back to Barr's roots as a candid and trailblazing comic. She not only changed the comedy world in the 1980s but also put the spotlight on women, flipping the script on what is expected of a typical "housewife" with her bold stand-up routines — and she did it all shortly before becoming a Hollywood star with her beloved, self-named sitcom.

"Nobody was more real than Roseanne," the America's Got Talent judge comments in an interview. "She was definitely to be the poster person for housewives."

Following a slight dip in her career, the comic saw fame in Hollywood yet again with another hit series years later, but a shocking tweet sent her top-rated comeback spiraling down. Her show was quickly cancelled and Barr's high profile career was seemingly permanently derailed.
