The third time is the charm for Gospel singing duo Mary Mary (Erica and Tina).
WEtv has just picked up the sister’s reality series for a THIRD season.
According to the network, 10-hour long episodes have been ordered for season three, which will be shot later this Spring.
“During the current season of Mary Mary, viewers witnessed two incredible births: Tina’s baby girl and Erica and Tina’s hit single, ‘Go Get It,’ which went on to win the duo a Grammy Award. It’s exactly this type of dimensionality that WE tv spotlights in women. Erica and Tina juggle their lives with grace and style; they are amazing role models for today’s young women and a great addition to WE tv,” Lauren Gellert, senior VP of original production and development, said in a release Wednesday (Feb.27).
Ratings/viewership has been up for the duo this season, up some 16%.
Congrats to Mary Mary. Go get it!!
IN OTHER NEWS, ABC has set a premiere date for the anticipated drama “Mistresses.”
Working on the strength of viewer favorites like “Revenge,” “Nashville” and “Scandal,” “Mistresses” will air during the 10 p.m. hour on Monday nights this Spring/Summer.
“Mistresses” is a provocative and thrilling drama about the scandalous lives of a sexy and sassy group of four girlfriends, each on her own path to self-discovery: Savannah (“Savi”), a successful career woman working toward the next phase in her life, both professionally and personally; Savi’s free-spirited and capricious baby sister, Josslyn; their friends April, a recent widow and mother of a ten-year-old daughter, and Karen, a therapist with her own thriving practice. These four friends find support and guidance with each other as they brave their turbulent journeys and life’s storms of excitement, secrecy and betrayal, all the while bound by the complex relationships they’ve created.
Some familiar faces will appear on this series, which I’m looking forward to watching.
Alyssa Milano as Savannah (“Savi”) Davis, Yunjin Kim as Karen Kim, Rochelle Aytes (“Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Reunion”) as April Malloy, Jes Macallan as Josslyn Carver, Brett Tucker as Harry Davis, Jason George (“Greys Anatomy,” “Eve”) as Dominic Taylor and Erik Stocklin as Sam Grey.
“Mistresses” premieres Monday, May 27 at 10 p.m. on ABC.
