President, Original Programming, BET Networks

Under Jones’ leadership, BET’s original series continue on their upward trajectory. The fifth season of “The Game” was the No. 1 sitcom on cable in 2012 among adults 18-49 and, coupled with the net’s “Let’s Stay Together” ranked as cable’s top two sitcoms among all black viewers. Similarly, “Apollo Live” delivered strong results among black viewers, and “Sunday Best” continues to elicit a strong ratings performance. Not resting on her laurels, Jones recently set to work prepping the launch of new original series including “Being Mary Jane,” from the producers of The Game and the T.D. Jakes talk show.
