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).

    Hi Mr Perry, I love this show. the only thing that bothers me with this show is Veronica always getting her way. I def dont think she should be killed but all she's done to her husband and son, there should be some type of consequences from her actions. I cant wait til next week and then the season finale.

    I loved the show at first, now to many open story lines!!! I don't like the DA, the weird cop and Wyatt getting immunity for killing people!!!! Why wasn't the situation with Quincy handled any better he should have been caught for all his wrong doing and sent back to jail? if all of these main characters are caught for their crimes the show will have to be surrounded the prison system!!!!

    Hi Mr. Perry, I totally love all of you work, as for the have and have nots, I feel that it's time to use Candace son to bring her and her mother closer, I feel that there's enough dama on the show that putting them at peace with each other, will not hurt the show, I'm not saying put them totally on the same page in life, but have a understanding that Candace son, need his mother and grandmother in his life.

      Jim deserves to be right where he's at, and so do most of the others. It's nice that you pray, but this isn't reality, it's only a SOAP OPERA, in case you forgot.

    I think it is time to get rid of Veronica and Wyatt. When will Candace get a hold of Oscar and please let the contract hit on Veronica go through. David needs a new woman in his life and stop making him so d*** naïve.

    OMG... MR. TP DON'T STOP, PEOPLE VOICES THEIR OPINIONS LIKE THEIR A** HOLES. EXCUSE MY FRENCH. EVERYBODY GOT ONE DIRTY OR CLEAN! THIS WORLD IS A REVOLVING CIRCLE FROM H*** TO HEAVEN. WE ALL HAVE A CHOICE TO CHOOSE AND WHO THEY WANT TO SERVE EACH NEW DAY. IF WE CAN SEE OUR LIVES DISPLAYS THROUGH ONE OF THESE CHARACTERS, WE ALL WOULD CHANGE TO GET ALONG AND MAKE THIS WORLD AS GOD HAS DESIGNED IT TO BE, WHICH IS WE ALL ARE CREATED UNIQUE AND ONE OF A KIND PRICELESS JEWEL. OUR WAYS ARE NOT GODS WAYS OR INDIVIDUAL OPINIONATED WAY. THE GREATEST OF ALL IS TO LOVE EACH OTHER AS CHRIST LOVES US IN A UNIQUE ONE OF A KIND WAY WHICH IS PRICELESS. KEEP DOING WHAT GOD SAYS TO DO AND LEAN NOT UNTO YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING. WITH MAN THINGS ARE IMPOSSIBLE...BUT WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. SO DO U MR. PERRY AND I AM PRAYING FOR YOU TO KEEP IT REAL. GOD GOTTCHA AND I AM PRAYING CONTINUOUS MIRACLES AND DELIVERANCE COME FORTH THROUGH ALL YOUR MESSAGES AND VIEWS IN JESUS NAME. KNOW THAT NO WEAPONS FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPEROUS! AMEN

      How can you bring God into this unholy mess of a show? Nothing but greed, violence and people getting away with too much with no consequences. I am shocked that a Christian man like Tyler could put such un-Godly trash on tv. No moral or Christian messages anywhere.

      Well put, Such filth for someone who professes to know God!! Yes there is drama in the world, but to add to it!! Really!! He has the capabilities to produce shows that uplift and inspire. Granted whats going on with Bill Cosby, at least his shows were inspirational to uplift. Oh the days of yester-years-Good Times, Growing pains. Such filth on television today.

      Stan, when you are trying to get rating for some reason it has to have some filth in it. It's getting grimmer and grimmer. It's not a Christian show. It's playing to both worlds. That's why you have most R&B singers that came out the church. They only get rich when they stop singing gospel and cater to both worlds unfortunately. Everytime I think about Whitney it grieves me. So blessed, talented, anointed had it all ........but it's a fine line to walk. If you want the ratings, popularity,rich and fame you have to cater to both worlds. .

    Tyler What a magnificent show. I am proud of Jeffrey, Glad he told that cop off. I hope his mother finds out. Good for Hanna For telling Katheryn off. David and her must think she is stupid. Hanna a smart woman. Every one is playing their parts very well. Quita is a good actress. She is so believable. This show should have gotten a NAACP award. I was not happy that it didn't get nominated. It should have. You Tyler show have gotten one for best writing and directing. Can't wait until the last show on Tuesday.

    The acting alone makes this show impossible to watch. The story line involving Candace attacks on the assistant and the social worker were unnecessary. The energy spent on "money" is 77 x 7 more than her interest in little Q. TP... suggestion... focus more on the psychosocialeconomic of finance rather than this violence. In the real world.. Quincy's Battery should be dead by now.

    Why are blacks portrayed as drug addicts and slum residents on this show? Why must we have so many dirty policemen? There is too much of this going on now and it is not entertaining. I quit watching the news to watch this series only to see more dirty policeman and druggers/murderers all black. Not entertaining. We can do better than this.
