BET's first hourlong scripted drama is a follow-up to the same-titled TV movie that premiered on the network in the summer of 2013. The series returns Gabrielle Union to the lead role of Mary Jane Paul, a successful cable news anchor who has a closet packed with designer clothes and shoes, a beautiful home, a nice car, and the drive to achieve even greater heights. Yet something is missing. As Mary Jane looks to start a family of her own to share life's greatest gifts, she discovers who she really is and the people who help define her.
It’s refreshing, to say the least, to watch a black, female character on a television drama series who 1) is a lead character, and 2) does not portray black femininity through extremes or stereotypes. Being Mary Jane is a show with a diversity of characters that highlight multiple dimensions of women’s lives, regardless of race.--Enuma Okoro, The Atlantic, January 16, 2014
