For the corporate executives at WE tv, bringing Mary Mary to the small screen to star in their own reality show, has nothing to do with ministry. This is no surprise.. Television is all about getting ratings up to rake ad dollars in. That’s why on Thursdays beginning March 29, only the two fly gospel chicks being featured on the reality tv series can ensure that Jesus is well-represented.
Last Fall, the network told The Hollywood Reporter that featuring the two gospel singers is a part of an overall larger strategy to “super serve” their growing urban audience.
“Mary Mary is a great fit for WE tv,” said Kim Martin, president & general manager of WE tv. “Erica and Tina are modern women balancing careers and family and doing it in the spotlight. Their issues are the same as so many women today, and this show will capture the entertaining ups and downs of life that they face on a daily basis.”
The show comes on the heels of the second season run of Braxton Family Values.
