Mara Brock Akil has been in the spotlight for many different things, but this new reason is a game changer.

Mara brought us “Girlfriends, “The Game,” “Being Mary Jane,” and more. Well, she hasn’t stopped working since the commencing of the above shows and in fact, her new deal shows us that she has been and will continue to be working for a long time. With this new Netflix deal, she will write and produce new scripted content under a multi-year deal.
