Being Mary Jane was an American drama television series created by Mara Brock Akil and starring Gabrielle Union, that debuted January 7, 2014 on BET. The 90-minute-pilot for the series aired on July 2, 2013. The series follows professional and personal life of successful TV news anchor Mary Jane Paul, who lives in Atlanta, Georgia. The series ended on April 23, 2019.
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
