Mary J. Blige’s Music Inspires Two New Lifetime Original Movies

March 29, 2023 | By Kali Girl

According to Deadline, Mary J. Blige is set to executive produce two brand new original movies for Lifetime, inspired by her chart-topping hits- “Mary J. Blige’s Real Love” and “Mary J. Blige’s Strength of a Woman.”

Ajiona Alexus (Empire, 13 Reasons Why) and Da’Vinchi (BMF, All American), will star as the film’s headliners.

The film “Real Love” will follow the journey of 18-year-old Kendra (Alexus) as she sets out on the road of self-discovery at an HBCU in North Carolina. Riding on a scholarship, Kendra strives to prioritize her education while juggling a job and navigating a strictly professional relationship with Ben (Da’Vinchi), her partner in a photography class.

However, despite facing opposition from her parents, financial struggles, and an unforeseen pregnancy, Kendra and Ben’s romance flourishes as they discover the true meaning of “real love.”

The second film, ‘Strength of a Woman,’ picks up the story of Kendra and Ben more than 15 years after their last encounter. Kendra, now an accomplished photographer, faces the reality of a failing marriage and must confront the consequences of her past decisions. Ben unexpectedly reappears and Kendra must confront her past and make a decision that could change her life forever.

Both films, produced under her own banner, Blue Butterfly, will premiere on consecutive Saturdays starting June 10th at 8 p.m.
