Gabrielle Union is taking on a new role for the upcoming BET endeavor Being Mary Jane. As a television host, Mary Jane (Gabby) grapples with making her voice heard and reporting on the “hard hitting news and other stories,” but when it comes to her show’s ratings, she has to keep in mind at what sells and what turns viewers away. She also struggles with being a 30something, single black woman in a small dating pool of eligible bachelors.
Directed and created by Mara Brock and Salim Akil, the pilot movie that is reported to likely become a series, will also include fellow co-stars Tika Sumpter and Omari Hardwick among others.
