Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Whoopi Goldberg will be starring in a proposed new comedy from ABC.
The comedy is titled Delores & Jermaine and it is one of the pilots on tap for the 2015-16 season.
Delores & Jermaine is based on the life of Jermaine Fowler who is a “a millennial with big ideas, but very little drive, who moves in with his estranged grandmother, a strict, football-loving, former D.C. cop who needs his youthful enthusiasm in her life as much as he needs her old-school parenting.”
Goldberg will play the grandmother Delores, who “left the police force for a safer job and wound up becoming a football-loving shut-in who, thanks to Jermaine, finally winds up leaving the house.”
Her new job will not affect her work on The View, because if the comedy is picked up, Goldberg would “juggle both.”
