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).

    Where can you buy all of the episodes of the haves and the have nots on DVD or can you not buy them? If you can't buy them then Tyler Perry should get them put on DVD so we can buy them. Who agrees?

    Tyler, where is the missing baby Candace claimed was murdered? I did not buy those crocodile tears? Does Jeffrey ever become "straight" and are his parents ever reconciled?

    Dear Mr. Perry, my wife and I would like to know whatever happened to the professor in the last episode that Amanda stabbed in the back? Is he still running in the park with the knife in his back? Lol

    Mr. Perry, Whatever you do, please do not kill off Candice or Wyatt. I think there should be another woman that can stand up to Veronica and Jeffrey need to Man Up!!! It would be nice to see Candice beat Veronica down and put some church scenes in the plot with some good singing and preaching. I love this show with a Passion. Very Good Work Wade
