The court was dismissed, as was Delilah Connolly. OWN canceled the Delia TV series so we won’t see a second season.
A drama series created by Craig Wright, the Delilah The television show stars Maahra Hill, Jill Marie Jones, Susan Heyward, Ozioma Akagha, Candace B. Harris, Kelly Jacobs, Khalil Johnson, and Braelyn Rankins. Delilah Connolly (Hill) is a headstrong and high-principled lawyer who lives in Charlotte, North Carolina. She left a demanding law firm ten years ago and hung up her own shingle so she could make her children’s education her top priority. Now she takes on business that big business ignores and more often than not comes face to face with the powerful and privileged as she fights for the outcasts. Along with raising her two children, Maia (Jacobs) and Marcus (Rankins), Delilah is also caring for her young nephew Dion (Johnson) and dealing with her relationship with her frustrating ex (Lyriq Bent). At work, she has the support of her new and ambitious assistant, Demetria Barnes, (Heyward) and Harper Omereoha (Akagha), Delilah’s unfailingly sunny secretary. As the series begins, Delilah is about to face her best friend, Tamara Grayson (Jones) in court for the first time. Delilah has always represented the underdogs while Tamara has always represented the rich and powerful.
Airing on Tuesday evenings, the first season of Delilah earned an average rating of 0.05 in the 18-49 age group and 321,000 viewers. All eight episodes aired in March and April last year and the show was a moderate performer for OWN.
While Delilah is over, Deadline reports that Hill will still be busy. She was chosen to star alongside Jesse L. Martin in The Irrational, a drama series pilot for NBC. He is based on Dan Ariely As expected irrational novel. The show follows Alec Baker (Martin), a world-renowned professor of behavioral science. He lends his expertise to a range of high-stakes cases involving governments, law enforcement and corporations through his unique and unexpected approach to understanding human behavior. Hill will play a shrewd and smart FBI agent who ends up teaming up with Martin’s character. The pilot will be filmed next month and the fate of the project will then be decided by NBC.
