Whoopi Goldberg's Delores & Jermaine Not Moving Forward at ABC

Whoopi Goldberg will have plenty of time to enjoy The View this fall: ABC has passed on her half-hour comedy pilot Delores & Jermaine, TVLine has learned.

The multi-cam project — based on the real-life experiences of comedian Jermaine Fowler — followed a millennial (played by Fowler) with big ideas, but very little drive. He moves in with his estranged grandmother (Goldberg), 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.

Fowler and Danny Chun (Trophy Wife, Hello Ladies) penned the script, with Michael Rotenberg (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and Avi Gilbert serving as executive producers.

    Too bad ,I was looking forward to this one; it would have been something a little different.

    I gave up on Whoopi’s View, and have been enjoying The Price Is Right.

    This is somewhat shocking to me. This was one pilot that seemed to be getting a ton of buzz…

    This sucks!! Whoopi deserves a new platform. She is so talented. I try to watch The View for her….I just can’t

  8. vj says:

    I have had enough of her. She has become very opinionated and arragant. Don’t want to watch anything she is on

    Not enjoying Whoopi anymore on The View so I don’t think I would watch her new series ..

    I don’t think Whoopi has a good rating among viewers because of her frequent nasty outbursts on the talk show. I think she kind of ruined her likability factor. These things count to producers laying out big money and looking to attract viewers by the popularity of the stars.
