Whoopi Goldberg has her eyes on yet another project and she’s heading to Bravo. Goldberg is developing an untitled drama for the network that’s set in modern day Harlem.
The series tells the story of a Harlem crime boss who is reunited with her oldest son — whom she thought was dead — after he returns to New York City to run for mayor. Being able to pass as white, he faked his death as a teenager and left New York in order to get a new start on life.
One Ho Productions, Goldberg’s company, is set to produce the series, and she may even star as well. Sources stress the Bravo project is in its early stages, and it’s unclear if she does ultimately star in it just how that would impact her future on the ABC talker. Goldberg in 2015 signed on to star in ABC’s Jermaine Fowler comedy pilot and planned to do both The View and the scripted comedy had that project moved forward.
