This actually looks really good. Not the typical "black show"

I'm kind of scared. The Game was so good until it got to BET. I think BET won't reign Mara in. CW did but BET won't. I think she will see she has ratings and then start to change the show making it rachet

OMG...this looks great. Great target audience for the lead character too. I see myself, my sister, and many of my friends in what it seems her story is about...very relatable.
