(Hollywood Reporter) – Whoopi Goldberg is making her return to scripted TV.

The View co-host has been tapped to star in ABC’s comedy pilot Delores & Jermaine, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Based on the life of Jermaine Fowler, the show will star the comedian as 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.

Following prolonged negotiations, Goldberg will play Delores, Jermaine’s grandmother who takes him in after he’s kicked out of his house. Delores 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.
