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 have to share my testimony to the world because i dont know who it might be helpful to. Am a popular actress,i never believe there will ever be a solution to my relationship problem with my lover. my lover called threw me out of his house and brought in another lady who he now love and only care for. Until one day i receive a phone call from a friend in the city that my man is going out on a date with another woman in town, i told her i am also surprise too, because since he has left me he dont speak or even call me. So after some few days my friend called Martha called me and told me that she has found a man that is very powerful great spell caster, she told me how this man help her family member too. She forward his email address () for me so that i can contact him for help, so truly she sent me DR KOBOKO YYA email address and i contacted him that faithful day. He mailed me after a while and assured me that my man will be back to me if only i believe on his work. So after 25hrs i receive a phone call from lover, and he started begging that i should please forgive him for all he had done to me.. He begged me of breaking my heart and letting the other lady a new heart. he promise me never to let go. now i and my lover are planning to get married next month.So i thank you DR KOBOKO for the great help you offer to me, because i think today this might be the only ways and means i can ever thank you of your work.. Am greatful. If you having similar problem, Contact him now www.drkobokospellcaster.blogspot.com or email() and get your problem solve once and for all.

    I really like to see this series on DVD because where I live now, it is not available on cable. I've missed the whole season and I feel as though I'm left in the dark as to what happen. You had the House of Payne on DVD why not "The Have and have nots".

    • zion #2024386

      they didn't even finish putting out the house of payne dvd's smh...


    I would to see Kathrine Cryer have an affair or two so that she can start her own sequence of lovers in wait. She's attractive and intelligent and I think that she can juggle a relationship outside the marriage and keep Jim in check at the same time. Hell! Who knows....maybe we'll see a little jealousy in Jim! Mind you I like the chemistry with Candy Cane and Jim but It would be something else to have Kate shake Jim up and make him have second, third and forth thoughts.

    I really like this show. It shows how some people really are and what there will do to stay on top, especially when you have money and power. It does indeed corrupt you. I am looking forward to the new season in January. I also like Tyler Perry's new show "If loving you is wrong". I am looking forward to the new season in March. Tyler really is indeed a talented brother.
