Lisa Vidal is preparing for her Mary Jane moment…
BET has ordered the original series Being Mary Jane, which stars the 47-year-old Puerto Rican actress, to series.
Being Mary Jane, which was originally picked up as a movie, comes from the producers of the award-winning, record breaking BET comedy The Game, Girlfriends and the movies Jumping the Broom and Sparkle.
The series is a follow up to the release of the Being Mary Jane movie of the week slated to launch on BET this summer.
Being Mary Jane centers on Mary Jane Paul, a one-woman-show: a successful TV news anchor, and an entirely self-sufficient powerhouse who remains devoted to a family that doesn’t share her motivation.
Intense drama and unforgettable moments unfold as Mary Jane juggles her life, her relationships, her work, and commitments to her family.
Along with Vidal, the series stars Gabrielle Union, Omari Hardwick, Richard Roundtree, Richard Brooks, Aaron D. Spears and Margaret Avery.
