In coming up with ideas for new shows, Marcy Carsey and Tom Werner of Carsey-Werner Productions decided to look into the concept of the working mother as a central voice.

The show is centered on the Conners, an American working-class family struggling to get by on a limited household income in the fictional town of Lanford, Illinois.

Lanford was nominally located in Fulton County, but other on-air references over the years suggest the town is in the vicinity of Aurora, Elgin, and De Kalb, which are much closer to Chicago.

Starring Roseanne Barr, the show revolved around the Conners, an Illinois working-class family.

The series reached #1 in the Nielsen ratings becoming the most watched television show in the United States from 1989 to 1990, and remained in the top four for six of its nine seasons, and in the top twenty for eight seasons, TV Guide rated "Roseanne" as one of the greatest shows of all time.

Up until that point, there had been shows with working mothers, but only as an adjunct to the father in the family.

Werner had suggested that they take a chance on Barr whom they had seen on The Tonight Show.

I respect his wife, but if he wasn't married I'd be putting on my cowboy boots and coming around.

She married Bill Pentland and they had three children together.

This was because he saw the unique "in your face" voice that they were looking for, and he contacted her agent and offered her the role.

Barr's act at the time was the persona of the "domestic goddess", but as Carsey and Werner explains, she had the distinctive voice and attitude for the character and she was able to transform her into the working class heroine they envisioned.
