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).

    I am asking to have Patti Labelle, and Oprah Winfrey to guest on the have and have nots. Hannas lost sister and Candace aunts. Please consider this to add something to the show. You need to have some music on the show for i tunes. This may help you.

    I do like the show. The plots are insanely crazy. The dialogue needs some serious work though. The conversations, in fact nearly every line between characters is the same. Over and over in the same scene. "For the last time <enter name>." "For the last time <enter name>." "For the last time <enter name>." "For the last time <enter name>." repeat... When you say "for the last time" normal people follow up with some action. They don't just say "for the last time" again, and again... But besides my issue with the dialogue, its a great show.

    The comments on the side bar, make it very clear that they live on Mars or some other planet. Today the world is full of haves and have nots, with and without money. I do not know a family living pure of problems. If you are clear today, keep living.

    I love this show. I watched for the first time in Georgia with my niece. Can't wait for it to return

  • Rose Gary Richmond,VA, USA

    I love the show. It is entertaining while touching on everyday life issues. Though all may not encounter these problems, many people do. Each episode has positive encouragement added at some point. I say great job to Mr. Perry, the cast and everyone that makes this show happen. Never like waiting for new season. I would like to know who sings song that plays as Candace tours the houses.
