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.”

  1. Whoopi Goldberg, the most frequently-employed actress that no one anywhere ever asked to see.

  2. Odd claim of an actress who was once very bankable (in the early 90s). Not much since then, admittedly…

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone describe a show that’s been for 18 years as “doomed to failure.”

  4. Obviously, you do not keep up. Since Ms. Walters left The View’s rating have been in free fall.

  5. Whoopi is still very bankable. You haven’t seen her on television because, she has been a Broadway producer. Ms. Goldberg has won the “Grand Slam” of Oscar, Emmy, Tony and Grammy. It is a very rare accomplishment to win the highest honor in movies, television, Broadway plays AND music.

  6. That’s true. I do not obsessively keep up with shows in which I have no interest, which would include shows like The View, The Talk, Rachel Ray, and any other show marketed to a female audience.
