The trailer for the upcoming BET movie event, Being Mary Jane has been posted online. We wrote earlier that we are eager to see this new vehicle starring the beautiful and talented Gabrielle Union.
In the pilot for the upcoming series, Union will play Mary Jane Paul who has it all: she’s a successful TV news anchor, entirely self-sufficient – an all-around powerhouse who remains devoted to a family that doesn’t share her motivation. As Mary Jane juggles her life, her work and her commitment to her family, we find out how far she’s willing to go to find the puzzle pieces that she, and society, insist are missing from her life as a single Black female.
