A lot of fans were shocked to hear that gospel singing group Mary Mary were planning to do a reality show. After all, the Grammy Award winners seem too grounded to engage in the tomfoolery that is reality television. But their self-titled show, although drama filled, remains something that the entire family can easily watch. The first episode finds the sisters struggling to strike a balance between career and family as they are called away from their L.A. homes to do a Thanksgiving show in Atlanta. A teary-eyed Tina has to miss her daughter’s first school performance because of it and wonders if her career is worth missing out on her family, while pregnant Erica’s dedication to work starts to cause problems (and contractions). All the while, they are dealing with their wild, sometimes tardy stylist and little sister, Goo, and their extra-anal manager, Michael. As Tina and Erica navigate their way through tough career choices, motherhood and their wifely responsibilities, it’s clear that reality TV just got a little bit more realistic.
The show will begin airing March 29 on WE TV.
