I Need Your Help

This message is to all my folks, especially my die-hard folks, the ones I call the “Board Members” - you know who you are :).  By now I’m sure you all know that I have moved my TV shows to OWN and on May 28th and 29th I have a two night premiere. On Tuesday night, my new hot drama THE HAVES AND THE HAVE NOTS starts. I’m telling you, I put it all in this show. I not only want you to watch it but we need you to watch it for several reasons. The biggest reason is this is a fresh group of faces and I am beyond excited to see them get their shot. I make you these promises, this SHOW WILL HOOK YOU!!!  I KNOW IT! Then on Wednesday night, which used to be my original night of TV, I’m going back to it with a brand new show called LOVE THY NEIGHBOR. It stars a bunch of new faces including the two folks I said I would give a sitcom to, Mamma Hattie (Patrice Lovely) and Floyd (Palmer Williams, Jr). They are so excited and this show is so funny. So Tuesday get your drama on and Wednesday get your funny on OWN, OK?  

I remember when HOUSE OF PAYNE started how people tried to kill it before it started, but because you watched it and were there, that show went on into the history books with 254 episodes. Thank you for that. You did that through the grace of God. So in less than ten days THE HAVES AND THE HAVE NOTS and LOVE THY NEIGHBOR will start on OWN.  I hope you are planning to watch them. Thank you for helping me help someone else. I wish you could see how excited these cast members are. They have been waiting to see their dreams come true and you know how much I love to be used by God to make that happen.  You’ll see, you’ll see.

And FYI, all of you FOR BETTER OR WORSE fans, it’s coming back with a new season to OWN as well. And all you HOUSE OF PAYNE fans, hold on, I’m trying to work on something..LOL, but we’ve got to launch these new shows first, OK?

Let me know your thoughts.

Many blessings and love to you.

    Mr Perry, My wife and I just returned home from our daughter's home from watching your new show and your interview with Opra. I must say that we had a wonderful evening watching the haves and the have nots along with your interview with Opra. Also, we just got home from Palm Springs from celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary where we saw Alex Cross a movie that kept us on the edge of our seats... we both want to say that we love your work and keep them comming. Thank you Mr. Perry. Mario & Christine Saenz

    I loved the show. I thought it would be too many sex scenes. That Candace is a heffa. The first Candance that started the show looks really different than the Candace that showed up at the birthday party. I know these are two different women. The first is lighter skinned than the other. I watched over and over and know these are two different women. The second has a part in the middle while the first has a part on the side. I'm lovin this show with all the skeletons. I had no intentions of watchin this one.

    Hello Mr.Perry, I will like only the opportunity to spend Fifteen minutes with you and share this wonderful story, that is not just revolutionary, but will wake the world up. It is the beautiful story of a people, the kind of story that made Eddy Murphy's Coming to America and Tyler Perry's Madea Classics today. I assure you that I will not be wasting your time. very Respectfully, Henry Durugbor

    Tyler your such a down to earth business man. I love it! I love your drive, how you glance through the rearview. But yet keeping your eyes constantly looking ahead. I like the way you make time to look through your side windows, making sure you cover yourself from any side swippers. I love you for taking care of your passengers, Tyler. I'm a writer, when I get to tell you one day my moments of struggling mentally, physically, spiritually to get to my road to success. I will tell you this may get a lil emotional and yes you may ask your assistance to get you a box of tissues. Then I will tell you if you don't mind will you ask her to get you some paper towels (Bounce) that is. Because this one will take you an emotional roller coaster. But before I began I will open up God is Good. When I end, I will end with God has been so good. Love you Tyler and all your struggles, it works out for good. Look at yourself, the innerman! You wouldn't be the man who you are today, without the struggle!

    Hi Tyler, Admittedly I have never been a big fan of any type of made for television drama series. However after viewing your very candid and heartfelt interview on OWN this evening I am very committed to fulfilling your request to view the series. In addition thank you for being so authentic and giving of yourself to your audience, cast and countless unknown everyday people who help you get through your daily journey. I am inspired by your example and have the greatest respect for your vision. Thank you for sharing.

    Congratulations to you Tyler! I'm so glad you're getting your stories/shows on OWN. I will be watching and I'm hoping others do as well. Your interview on Next Chapter may me remember something Maya Angelou said, "The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned." Thanks Tyler and May God Bless.
