    “Being Mary Jane” was created by Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil, the husband-and-wife duo behind popular shows like “The Game” and “Girlfriends.”

    “She’s human. That’s what I wanted to show, (that) this woman is a person that we all can relate to,” Mara said of Mary Jane’s character. “I wanted to show those raw, real sides, the secrets that we keep to ourselves, so that maybe we can see ourselves and say it’s OK.”

    “She’s flawed,” Union added. “She’s chasing perfection, and she’s falling dramatically short and dealing with the consequences of not having it all in every aspect of her life.”
