'Being Mary Jane'
After what was a strong backdoor pilot movie premiere over the summer (4 million viewers and a 2.0 rating with adults 18-49, making it that night's highest rated cable TV show, and the 2nd highest rated show on all of TV), BET’s first original scripted hour-long drama, Being Mary Jane, now has a debut date: Tuesday, January 7 at 10 pm.

Created by Mara Brock Akil, and starring Gabrielle Union, the series chronicles the work, social and family life of a successful African American career woman (Mary Jane Paul, played by Union), an acclaimed host of a 24-hour national cable news network. As Mary Jane juggles her life, her work and her commitment to family, viewers follow how far she’s willing to go to find those puzzle pieces that she, and society, insist are missing from her life as a single black female.

    Gabrielle and Lisa Vidal play well off of each other. You can tell they respect each other underneath it all but they both are hungry to be successful. They are not trying stab each other in the back but they are honest enough to admit if it comes down to your job or mine its going to be you. I think a lot of professional women like myself can appreciate that kind of friendship.
