Gabrielle Union landed her own show on BET called BEING MARY JANE as previously reported here, and it made it’s debut last night at the Urbanworld film festival. The show, created by Salim Akil and Mara Brok Akil (The Game, Sparkle) will be an hourlong scripted drama.
Gabby will play Mary Jane Paul, the anchor of a 24-hour news channel. In the movie (which has been picked up by BET as a full series) we will follow Mary Jane as she deals with being a single black female with a high stress job in a fast paced environment. She’ll be joined by Omari Hardwick, Tika Sumpter, Lisa Vidal and Richard Roundtree.
