10 One-Hour Episodes to Debut in Early 2013

NEW YORK, NY - May 9, 2012 - WE tv has ordered a second season of its original series MARY MARY just six weeks into the debut season's successful run. The series stars Erica and Tina Campbell, sisters and musicians in the three-time Grammy(R) award winning Gospel duo, "Mary Mary." The second season begins production this month; 10 one-hour episodes will premiere on WE tv in early 2013.

The second season will follow the sisters through the birth of Tina's fifth child, their latest album release - "Go Get It" - a family wedding, a cross-country album tour and countless appearances and events, all while balancing their busy, growing families.

Commented Lauren Gellert, WE tv's senior vice president of original production & development: "The success of 'Mary Mary' is both a testament to the engaging personalities of Erica and Tina and to WE tv's programming strategy of catering to an underserved audience of African American women. Coupled with 'Braxton Family Values' and the upcoming series 'LA Hair' and 'Tamar & Vince,' 'Mary Mary' is yet another opportunity for WE tv to serve this valuable audience and provide opportunities to our advertising and distribution partners to engage with them as well."

Added Erica and Tina: "We're super excited about season 2 -- more music, more mommying, more husbands, more Goo Goo, Mitchell and Ms. Honey, and definitely more fun and chaos!"

To date, MARY MARY has been viewed by 11.1 million total viewers since its premiere on March 29, and is delivering three times WE tv's prime time female viewership average. The season one finale airs on Thursday, May 31 at 9 pm, ET/PT.

MARY MARY is produced for WE tv by eOne Televison with executive producers Tara Long, Eric Hoberman and John Morayniss. The show is also executive produced by Erica and Tina Campbell and Mitchell Solarek. Kate Farrell serves as the executive producer for WE tv.
