Actress Gabrielle Union has sued television network BET, claiming they are trying to short-change her by adding more episodes into a single season of her show Being Mary Jane than initially agreed.

The 42-year-old star contends producers for the hit series vowed that seasons would never run more than 13 episodes, but they’re now trying to pack 20 shows into Season Four.

Union is slated for a raise from $150,000 per episode to $165,000 in Season Five and believes the network is attempting to “fraudulently extend” the terms of her contract.

She is reportedly seeking upwards of $1 million in damages and wants her contract to guarantee they will not go beyond the episode limit they allegedly promised her.
