TV ONE'S NEW SCRIPTED COMEDY "BORN AGAIN VIRGIN" STARRING DANIELLE NICOLET, EVA MARCILLE, MEAGEN HOLDER AND DURRELL "TANK" BABBS ARRIVES WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5 AT 10PM/ET
Silver Spring, MD (July 9, 2015) - This summer, TV One takes a sexy, sassy look at love and dating in today's hyper-connected world in the new scripted comedy Born Again Virgin premiering Wednesday, August 5 at 10PM/ET. Born Again Virgin explores the journey of dating through three 30-something best friends. The series follows Jenna (Danielle Nicolet), a writer who decides to become celibate after a stream of unsuccessful dates and hook-ups leave her wanting more meaningful relationships. She decides to blog about her newly adopted sex-fast and share the hilarious "sexcapades" of her girlfriends - Kelly (Meagan Holder), a publicist, known equally for her success launching new clients as her ability to attract 'failure to launch' men and Tara (Eva Marcille), a budding actress who splits her time between gigs hanging out with her girls and finding her next suitor to bankroll her celebrity-inspired lifestyle. Delivering a bit of temptation is Donovan (Durrell "Tank" Babbs), their hot neighbor who makes staying on the right path nearly impossible for Jenna. Each week, the ladies comically work through their dating woes and career challenges while showcasing heartfelt moments of friendship.
"The face of abstinence is changing daily, as evidenced by Russell Wilson's recent disclosure of abstaining from sex with girlfriend Ciara, and proving that even when sex is removed from the relationship equation, there remains a never-ending supply of flirty fun and adventure to be had," said D'Angela Proctor, SVP Original Programming & Production for TV One. "As Jenna's journey continues, viewers will see that sexual liberation doesn't have to include sex at all."
