Description:

From prolific, writer, director, producer Tyler Perry, The Haves and the Have Nots is a new television drama that follows the complicated dynamic between the rich and powerful Cryer family and the hired help who work in their opulent mansion set in Savannah, Georgia.

From the outside, the Cryers 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 Young, with the power to ruin the entire family.

Hanna Young (Crystal Fox) is the Cryer’s maid and the matriarch of her family. Despite having no money, she has found other types of wealth through religion and virtue. She prides herself on her dutiful son Benny (Tyler Lepley), the glue who helps keep the family together. Hanna does have one dark secret, however, her estranged daughter Candace (Tika Sumpter)—a manipulative opportunist who will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

Other characters in the series include the Cryer’s chef Celine (Eva Tamargo), their wealthy friends Veronica (Angela Robinson) and David Harrington (Peter Parros), and son Wyatt’s rehabilitation counselor, Jeffery Harrington (Gavin Houston).

    Mr. Perry you have done your thing this season. The jail scene this evening was off the chain. I thought that after Hanna's performance last was superb, talk about a Christian Mother protecting her cub. Veronica has really grown into her character this season, while her husband still needs to buy a clue. There is Love and then there is stupidity, "WAKE UP" the sicko burned downed your house with you in it!!!! Continue Tyler being you. Love Candy Cane. She's just a lady you would love to hate but you just can't because she keeps it 100!!!!

      Christian Mother--Really, all the swearing Hannah does? ARE U KIDDING ME? If she was so Holy Ghost filled--This language would not come out of her mouth. No matter how angry a person gets. God is Holy!!

    I wanted so much to love/enjoy watching this show, however for me, I find all story lines and actors rather boring. Not to any fault of the professionalism which each actor appears to attempt; albeit, some are more provocative than others. Nevertheless, again, from my prospective, the production/direction lacks authentic passion. The camera focus is much "too long, especially given the fact that the make-up on the female actors is brutal, every flaw is overly pronounced; not the case with the males. I think the stress of spending one-self too far is evident.

      I totally disagree! I especially like this because it resembles realness with everyday people. You want totally flawless... try makeup Desiree. I'd rather see some imperfections than the flawless looks of perfection... we see enough of that in magazines, on the red carpet, etc. Keep it real and thanks for appealing to everyday people. ...... They are all beautiful anyway. Thanks Tyler for keeping it real! :) And, you have family shows for the other negative reply... perhaps they need to research as you have an abundance of choices for an audience to chose from in television watching. You are awesome!

    This is some of your best work yet. You will not turn away once you start watching. I've been a fan Tyler Perry since his first Madea plays.

    I really love this show and it's case of characters. Why did TP chose to use Savannah, GA as the setting of this show and not one person on this show speaks with a southern accent? My husband even is hooked now. Sorry to see Amanda go; she played a great role, hopefully she has moved on with something else worthy of her acting abilities. Would love to hear the answer to this question please.

    Love the show! Wish John Schneider prepared better or followed script better. It seems like he's always trying to remember what his lines are.
