Although she was born in LA, Mara spent the majority of her childhood in Kansas City, Missouri, where she attended Raytown South High School. She later enrolled at Northwestern University from which she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. She began her career in 1994 when she was engaged on “South Central”, Fox Network’s short-lived but critically acclaimed TV series. This arrangement provided the basis for Mara’s net worth and helped her to establish herself as a prominent young screenwriter.

Between 1996 and 1999, Mara was occasionally engaged on the “Moesha” TV series for which she wrote seven episodes. Later in 1999, Mara served as the supervising producer as well as the writer on four episodes of “The Jamie Foxx Show”, however, Mara’s real career breakthrough came with “Girlfriends”, her own comedy TV series entirely created and written by her. The story follows the lives of four women through eight seasons, picturing their day-to-day lives abundant with loves but losses also. For this engagement, Mara Brock Akil was rewarded with a BET Comedy Award in 2005 as well as NAACP Image Award nomination in 2007. It is certain that “Girlfriends” brought millions of dollars to Mara’s overall net worth.

On the wings of the “Girlfriends” series’ popularity and commercial success, Mara Brock Akil created its spin-off series named “The Game”, which aired for nine seasons between 2006 and 2015, and followed a group of women in various relationships with professional American Football players. Not only did this venture increase Mara’s wealth by a large sum, but it also brought her an NAACP Image Award in 2012 and a nomination in 2014. In 2010, Mara briefly worked on two episodes of season one of “Cougar Town”. It is certain that all these achievements contributed to the overall net worth of Mara Brock Akil.

In 2014, Mara launched her new television series – “Being Mary Jane” – a romantic drama which follows a young black woman in her professional as well as family life. The show was positively received by the audience, and is currently in its fourth season – the critics honored it with an NAACP Image Award in 2016. Doubtlessly, this achievement has increased Mara Brock Akil’s popularity and has certainly contributed to her overall net worth in a positive manner.

When it comes to her personal life, Mara Brock Akil has been married since 1999 to television director Salim Akil, with whom she has two sons.
