Prominent African-American television network BET hosted their Being Mary Jane screening at the 16th Annual Urban World Film Festival in New York City. Actresses Gabrielle Union and Tika Sumpter, reality star Jennifer Williams and married writer-duo Salim and Mara Brock Akil (Girlfriends, The Game & Soul Food) were all spotted on the red carpet along with BET‘s CEO Debra Lee. It is being reported that “the shows centers around Gabrielle’s character Mary Jane Paul, an anchorwoman who is trying to juggle life, work and her commitment to her family as a single Black female.” Tiki also stars in the series as well which is rumored to premiere with a 2 hour original movie before the actual series starts. There is no official release date as of yet but I am hearing that the show is somewhat similar to VH1‘s ‘Single Ladies‘.
