TV One’s new scripted comedy Born Again Virgin stars Danielle Nicolet, Eva Marcille, Meagan Holder and Durrel ‘Tank’ Babbs. It tells the tale of three 30-something best friends and their dating journey. Along the way they bump into a set of some serious eye candy (insert Tank and former NFLer Thomas Jones, most famously known for his role as the “cutty buddy” from Being Mary Jane).
Watch a few funny clips below:
Marcille talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about her role in the hit show, raising a one-year-old daughter and much more.
“The show is so much fun. My character, Tara, thinks love and sex go hand in hand. If [the lead character] won’t have sex with him, I will. I’m the girl who you want to party with but you don’t want to walk in the club with. It’s really cool to see our people being portrayed how we really are in the way we like to portray ourselves,” Marcille said. “A lot of times you see depictions of Black people on TV and a white person wrote that and directed that and that’s not who we are. It’s not how we act, it’s not how we talk, it’s not how we think. Our creator is an amazing Black woman, Ranada Shepherd and our showrunner, Alyson Fouse, is an amazing Black woman, straight out of Compton. It’s a show run by Black woman, written by a team of Black woman; the only man we have in there is Russ Parr, our creative director. So the depiction ends up being really cool.”
