Gabrielle Union is the star of a new summer television series on BET, ‘Being Mary Jane.’ The actress teams up with one of my favorite Hollywood Power Couples, Salim Akil and Mara Brok Akil for a scripted drama about the life of a television anchor.
According to Concrete Loop:
Being Mary Jane stars Gabrielle Union who plays a one-woman show while characterizing a single, hard-working African-American woman who struggles to find love, while balancing her family commitments and career.
Actors Omari Hardwick, Tika Sumpter, Richard Brooks, Stephen Bishop, Robinne Lee and more will be featured alongside the Think Like a Man star.
It is still unclear whether Being Mary Jane will live as a film or a TV series, as both BET and other media entities describe the project using both terms. Despite, the Mara Brock Akil-written and Salim Akil-directed project is slated to premiere on July 2, 2013.
