Controversial comic Roseanne Barr is heading back to TV to narrate a documentary about crazed mothers.

The funnywoman, who starred in her sitcom “Roseanne” for nine years before fronting her own chat show, will lend her voice to creepy new series “Momsters: When Moms Go Bad.”

The show, which will air on the Discovery channel, focuses on mothers who commit crime in a bid to see their children succeed.

One episode focuses on Wanda Holloway, a Texas mother who was accused of attempting to hire a hitman to kill her daughter’s cheerleading rival.
