More clips from Being Mary Jane to tease - assuming it's on your 'to-see' list for the summer, when it debuts on BET, on Tuesday, July 2nd at 10:30pm ET/PT.

Immediately before it, BET will broadcast the return of another team-Akil creation, The Game, at 10pm. Per the press release:

Fans will finally learn the fate of their favorite characters. After Keira’s big revelation, it looked like her fledgling relationship with Blue might not make it off the ground.  Will Keira and Blue’s first time be their last?  And Tasha might finally have to face the consequences of her affair with Rick. 

Being Mary Jane stars Gabrielle Union, Omari Hardwick, Richard Roundtree, Margaret Avery, Lisa Vidal, Richard Brooks, Tika Sumpter, Raven Goodwin, B.J. Britt, Aaron Spears, Latarsha Rose, Stephen Bishop and Robinne Lee.

The Being Mary Jane original TV series is slated to premiere in early 2014 on BET.

Fans can follow updates on both series via Facebook: Facebook.com/BETthegame and Facebook.com/BeingMaryJane. And on Twitter: @thegameBET and @BeingMaryJane.

Watch the two clips below; in the first, Mary Jane confesses to the wife of her lover; and the second is a 6 1/2-minute behind-the-scenes featurette:
