From The Black Voices — Ever wonder what happened to ‘Girlfriends’ actress Jill Marie Jones?

Well, she’s landed a gig — that is on, putting her in great company.

Following in the footsteps of TBS’s highly-successful micro-series ‘My Manny,’ which starred Elise Neal, comes a new series starring the woman who played the brazen real estate saleswoman Toni Childs.

The Baileys spokesperson and former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader will star as the title character Gillian in a new series called ‘Gillian in Georgia,’ which follows a hip, single New Yorker who visits her family in a small town in Georgia.

The show will also star ‘Stomp the Yard’ actor Darrin Henson as her love interest, ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ actress Shondrella Avery as her sister and James Mathis II, who appeared in ‘The Matrix.’

It will make its debut during commercial segments following TBS’s ‘Tyler Perry‘s Meet the Browns’ at 8 pm on April 28 with two new episodes showing each Wednesday for five consecutive weeks within commercial time.

‘Gillian in Georgia’ is sponsored exclusively by Chevy Malibu, which will be prominently featured in the show, particularly to show how the show’s main character uses a Chevy Malibu car to get around town.

    Awe. Too bad I don’t watch Tyler’s shows or I’d be able to catch Jill Marie’s series.
    Wish they’d just make a sitcom because it sounds like it’s good look.
