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.
