Tyler Perry Comes To OWN With A Two-Night Spectacular Event!
Tyler Perry is coming to OWN with two brand new shows! And there’s no better way to kick it off than with a new Oprah’s Next Chapter featuring Tyler Perry on Sunday May 26th 9/8c.
Then on Tuesday May 28th 9/8c, it’s the premiere of Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots on OWN.
From writer and director Tyler Perry, this new television series follows the complicated dynamic between the rich and powerful Cryer family and the hired help who work in their mansion set in Savannah, Georgia.
From the outside, the Cryer’s are the enviable face of success and wealth, but behind the veil, the family’s dysfunction threatens to destroy their world of privilege. Cryer family patriarch Jim Cryer (John Schneider) is a powerful judge whose double-life, including tawdry affairs with high-priced escorts, puts his family and political ambitions at risk. His wife, Katheryn Cryer (Renée Lawless), is the ultimate matriarch portraying a loving and dutiful wife, but she is willing to do anything to protect her family’s status.
Their son Wyatt (Aaron O’Connell) is a troubled angry jock who cares little for his own image and finds himself in and out of rehab. His sister Amanda (Jacyln Betham), a struggling law student, tries harder to live up to her parents’ expectations, but unknowingly has befriended a scurrilous young woman, Candace (Tika Sumpter), with the power to ruin the entire family. Hanna Young (Crystal Fox) is the Cryer’s maid and the matriarch of her family.
Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots premieres Tuesday May 28th 9/8c on OWN! Hit the flip to find out more about the brand new comedy, Tyler Perry’s Love Thy Neighbor, next!
