R&B legend and queen of the culture Mary J. Blige has been in her bag lately. The megastar recently inked some major TV deals that are leaving her die-hard fans wanting to know more about what she has been up to.
One of the deals is for a new television talk show with BET called The Wine Down. The show, which is in production partnership with Blige’s production company, Blue Butterfly and BET, will be hosted by Mary J. Blige. She will also serve as one of the show’s executive producers.
In a statement, the talented performer and Power Book II star said BET has been one of the “biggest supporters” throughout her career.
“Being able to now create together, for them to be so supportive of my vision for the type of content I will create, is something I am grateful and excited for. We already have multiple projects in the works and there is much more to come,” the Good Morning Gorgeous singer added.
According to BET EVP of Specials, Music Programming & Music Strategy Connie Orlando, the collaboration seems to be an exciting venture for the network too.
Orlando gave Mary J. Blige her flowers and said BET is “proud to supercharge” its portfolio through its partnership with Blue Butterfly.
“Throughout her legendary career, Mary has blazed trails to become a global superstar,” said Orlando.
“With Blue Butterfly, Mary develops awe-inspiring stories of the Black experience while uniquely using music to set the foundation. Mary has been a vital part of the BET family and we are eager to see our partnership flourish through this partnership.”
Blige’s other recent contracts include a second-look scripted project with BET and a scripted TV project with Lionsgate Television.
Mary. J Blige is sure to succeed in her new role as a talk show host. In the hit series Power, Blige has shown the world she can command the big screen without having a microphone in her hand. Power will premiere its third season on March 17.
