It’s another year of being for Lisa Vidal…
During its upfront in New York, BET has confirmed the renewal of its freshman series Being Mary Jane, which stars the 48-year-old Puerto Rican actress in a series regular role, for a second season.
The series centers on successful talk show host Mary Jane Paul (portrayed by Gabrielle Union), her professional and private family life, while searching for “Mr. Right.”
Being Mary Jane, the network’s first one-hour original drama, is a bona fide smash, earning wide critical acclaim and the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Television Movie. It became the season’s No. 1 Tuesday primetime show on any network.
In addition to Union and Vidal, who portrays Kara Lynch, a lead producer at SNC and Mary Jane’s friend, the series also stars Richard Roundtree, Stephen Bishop, Margaret Avery, Richard Brooks, B.J. Britt, Raven Goodwin, Aaron D. Spears and LaTarsha Rose.
