Lifestyle net WE tv has greenlit Mary Mary, an eight-episode, one-hour original series showcasing Erica and Tina Campbell, sisters and musicians in the Grammy winning Gospel duo of the same name.

The tentatively titled series will follow the sisters as they balance careers and growing families, and will debut on March 29, 2012, airing on Thursday nights, where the net airs original programming focused on family and drama.

The series forms part of the net’s strategy to launch a third night of original programming dedicated to serving what it sees as a growing urban audience.

Mary Mary is a great fit for WE tv,” said Kim Martin, the network’s president and general manager. “The series speaks to our programming strategy of producing stories that feature every kind of family and all kinds of drama.

“Erica and Tina are modern women balancing careers and family and doing it in the spotlight. Their issues are the same as so many women today, and this show will capture the entertaining ups and downs of life that they face on a daily basis.”
