A new scripted comedy series that has been generating buzz delivered a big opening-night audience for the digital cable and satellite network TV One.
TV One announced Monday that “Born Again Virgin” bowed Wednesday, Aug. 5, with 1.4 million total viewers in Nielsen Live+3 figures.
“The premiere episode at 10 p.m. ET ranked #4 among key Black demos in its time period. Additionally, TV One ranked among Ad-supported Cable’s Top 5 networks during the 10PM hour among Blacks,” the network noted in its announcement.
The announcement adds: “‘Born Again Virgin’ explores the journey of dating through three 30-something best friends. The series follows Jenna (Danielle Nicolet), a writer who decides to become celibate after a stream of unsuccessful dates and hook-ups leave her wanting more meaningful relationships. She blogs about her newly adopted sex-fast and shares the hilarious ‘sexcapades’ of her girlfriends — Kelly (Meagan Holder), a publicist, known equally for her success launching new clients as her ability to attract ‘failure to launch’ men, and Tara (Eva Marcille), a budding actress who splits her time between gigs hanging out with her girls and finding her next suitor to bankroll her celebrity-inspired lifestyle. Delivering a bit of temptation is Donovan (Durrell ‘Tank’ Babbs), their hot neighbor who makes staying on the right path nearly impossible for Jenna.”
The series was created by Ranada Shepard and is produced by Swirl Films. Eric Tomosunas serves as executive producer.
