Whoopi Goldberg’s contract with The View expires at the end of the season, which means she’ll have time to work on a brand-new drama for Bravo, reports The Hollywood Reporter. The show will follow a Harlem crime boss who gets reunited with her oldest son, thought to be dead, once he returns to New York City to run for mayor. The son, able to pass as white, faked his death as a teenager and left New York for a new start. Goldberg will executive-produce the drama, and she might even go for the role of crime boss in the drama. As The View will be approaching its 21st season, now seems like the perfect time for Goldberg to get back into acting. Fingers crossed.
