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.

We'll see you on the 28 and 29 of "May"! "God" loves you and so do I"!!!

    Tyler, I think it's beautiful day in the neighborhood whenever your ideas come together whether on screen or tv. Bringing forth the vision through your prospective based on past memories, experiences and dreams of how it should and could be, becomes a moment in time that truly capture a viewer heart and mind such as myself. Bring it on. It is welcomed. Take care.

    Sounds awesome!!! Unfortunately, I'm far away on the other side of this planet and won't get to see the premiere BUT that won't stop me. I love Tyler Perry movies so this ones are a must have! :) :) Good morning from PNG.

    Tyler anything that I had planned for those two nights has been rescheduled. WHATEVER you put your name on I support!!!!!! Anyone that knows me knows that I am a die hard Tyler Perry fan. I just want to say that I love and support your vision and I too believe in your calling from God. Please don't let the "naysayers" block your mission. There are many people aside from self that depend heavily on your ideas, movies, plays, sitcoms, WHATEVER! You and Oprah teaming up, the sky is the limit. You both are already 2 separate forces to be reckoned with, so putting you 2 together.......The world is about to experience something AWESOME!!!!! I salute Oprah for joining in your vision in such a profound way. Kudos to you both. keep doing what you do boo, and we got you!
