“Mary Jane” Drags BET Network To Court

Actress Gabrielle Union has filed a lawsuit against BET, claiming the network tried to short-change her by stuffing more episodes into a single season of her show “Being Mary Jane” than she agreed upon, The Hollywood Reporter has reported.

Daily News recounts that the 42-year-old star contends producers for the hit series vowed that seasons would never run more than 13 episodes, but they’re now trying to jam 20 shows into Season 4.

Union is slated for a raise from $150,000 per episode to $165,000 in Season 5 and believes the network is attempting to “fraudulently extend” the terms of her contract, according to the lawsuit.

She’s reportedly seeking over $1 million in damages and wants her contract to guarantee they won’t go beyond the episode limit they allegedly promised her.
