Jones may have just stepped down as President, Original Programming, but not to fear: She’ll remain heavily engaged as a creative consultant to BET Networks. Her record is stellar, launching the fi rst original scripted drama for BET in January with “Being Mary Jane,” which bagged more than 5 million viewers on premiere night, and cuing up the fi rst mini-series for the network titled “Book of Negros” starring Cuba Gooding Jr., Louis Gossett Jr., and Aunjanue Ellis. Jones also set up a new movie for BET called “Let the Church Say Amen” with award-winning director Regina King. Meanwhile, Jones also knows when not to let a good show get away: she has overseen “The Game,” which came to BET after its run on The CW.
