First Look: Mary J. Blige In ‘Power: Book II’

Published: Thursday 23rd Jan 2020 by David

Mary J. Blige is in ‘Power.

Your first look at the legendary R&B icon in dramatic action below…

Mary is to lead the cast of ‘Power’s spinoff series by way of a character named Monet who is said to be a major mover and shaker in the show’s universe.

Today fans nabbed their first look of the singer in action as the businesswoman shortly before it glides into action on the Starz network.

Producer Courtney A. Kemp had this to say about the collaboration and why the show’s creators are stoked about welcoming Mary to the mix.

Power obviously is a masculine show but has very strong female characters. For Mary’s character, we use all the power and presence of the actress to communicate how this is a woman who is remarkable and unique in her abilities. She’s as smart, savvy, and strategic as Ghost ever was, but her learning doesn’t come from books. We always said Ghost was a bookish kid who read all the time. This woman’s acumen comes from the street.

Stay tuned for more on the series.
