The Conners executive producer: "We’re not doing any more of the Trump stuff"
Executive producer Bruce Rasmussen wouldn't reveal how Roseanne Conner's character will be written out of the series. "We wanted to honor that character. People can have their opinions after that," he says. As for how political The Conners will be compared to the Roseanne revival, Rasmussen adds: "We are living in a time where people are very anxious and can’t afford to go to the doctor and all that other stuff. So we’re writing in the same way we wrote last year about the economic things. If some of those feel political, they’re political, but we’re not doing any more of the Trump stuff. It’s more about working-class people and how they live their lives. If that comes off as political in spots then that’s how people will perceive it."
