TV One has announced the return of its hit series “Born Again Virgin.” The scripted comedy returns with more dating adventures of three 30-something best friends, on Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
A week before that return, tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 25, TV One will run a “Born Again Virgin” marathon (from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET/PT). In addition, TV One is also celebrating “Happy Tanks-giving” during the marathon (2-5 p.m. ET/PT) with special back-to-back episodes featuring Durrell “Tank” Babbs, who plays Donovan.
“Born Again Virgin” returns to find that Jenna has miraculously kept busy blogging about her newly adopted sex-fast and has yet to fall off the wagon. Meanwhile, best friend Kelly has been frustrated in every way imaginable, but has taken control and launched her own public relations firm successfully. And Tara continues to pursue her dream acting gig, but after becoming the leading lady in her new fiancé’s life, has to reevaluate what role she wants to take center stage in her life. And finally, next door neighbor, Donovan, has taken residence in the “friend zone,” but as his relationship with Jenna evolves, he realizes their friendship has benefits worth nurturing.
In the mid-season premiere, a celebration for Kelly’s favorite aunt’s 100th birthday turns into a serendipitous encounter with a host of characters including a sweet elderly woman who shares her decade’s long love story with Jenna, a retired stage performer who challenges Tara to respect her craft, and Rick, who Kelly seems to think has changed for the better.
TVOne.tv will also feature “Cuffing While Celibate,” a month-long digital companion to “Born Again Virgin.” Each week, the blog, written by Panama Jackson from Very Smart Brothas, will provide a dating regimen for those practicing physical or emotional celibacy during the fall and winter months. Known as “cuffing season,” fall and winter are the primetime for beginning and maintaining relationships.
