Mara Brock Akil, the creator of shows such as Girlfriends, The Game, and Being Mary Jane has landed a new multi-year deal with Netflix to produce original content! In a statement Akil said, It is a dream to partner with the force of Netflix, for we have the same goals—telling human stories for a global audience. I’m excited to have a home that allows me the creative freedom and support to do what I do best—paint portraits and murals of women, Black people, and anyone else whose story is missing from this golden age of television. Akil has that magic touch so get ready for more good shows! Mara Brock Akil is so talented.
