Lisa Vidal could be playing Gabrielle Union’s BFF on television in the near future…
The 46-year-old Puerto Rican American actress will co-star opposite Union in BET’s hour-long pilot Being Mary Jane, which was formerly called Single Black Female.
The project centers on Union’s character Mary Jane Paul, a successful talk show host looking to one day become the No.1 nightly news anchor while searching for Mr. Right.
Vidal—who most recently appeared in FX’s instahit series American Horror Story and last co-starred in NBC’s The Event—will play Kara, the lead producer for Mary Jane’s show and Mary Jane’s friend.
