Being Mary Jane – starring Gabrielle Union (a BET movie)

Being Mary Jane is easy when you look like Gabrielle Union!

The gorgeous 40-year-old actress returns to TV Tuesday, July 2, when her new series Being Mary Jane premieres on BET in the form of a two-hour movie (you know, like Battlestar Galactica).

The show is a big deal for the network as it’s their first original drama series and hails from the producers of BET’s hit series The Game. But it seems like courting Union to join their lineup is an even bigger deal for BET as they boast “We Got Gabrielle” in a trailer for Being Mary Jane. Hey, can you blame ’em?!

Union, who is dating NBA star Dwayne Wade, plays the titular character, Mary Jane Paul, a successful TV anchor and a self-sufficient woman who remains devoted to her family, even if they don’t share her ambition or motivation. BET is hoping women everywhere relate to Mary Jane as she juggles work, relationships and family.
