The BET Premiere Cinema film "BEING MARY JANE" - an original made for television movie and pilot from the powerhouse couple behind "Sparkle" and "The Game" - will debut the film at the 3rd Annual Urbanworld Film Festival in New York City.

Mary Jane Paul happens to be part of a growing American statistic - the single, black female. Although this successful television news anchor does not have a family to call her own, she does have parents, brothers, nieces and close friends to keep her well-balanced as she manages her life as a mature single woman. Mary Jane may report on everyone else's lives every night on the evening news, but now we will pull the curtain back and see how it feels "BEING MARY JANE."
