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).

    The HAHN- it's not too d*** hot, but the drama is finally heating up. Veronica's character finally had actions with her words; She let Maggie Day have the business. It's about time Hanna get a lil something something. We gotta find a way to get Benny the Bear out of the way-maybe it's time for the girl from the hospital to step in to distract Benny from his mom and Candace. As for poor Jim, he deserves what he's getting-Candy's Karma. However, when Candace finds out that Amanda has made a suicide attempt, I think she will let Jim go-depending on Amanda's outcome. Will Jeffery try to kiss on Quincy? Will Quincy finally get his hands on Candace? I think Mr. Perry is going to turn it up on the next few episodes-I hope and I will be awaiting for the drama to come.

      I agree, three episodes and we still do not know who got shout. To much waiting. Tyler perry made use wait until the show came back on so what,s the real problem. I'm starting to lose interest in the show.

    As I am sitting here watching this weeks episode I am honestly very disappointed. Thus far, in my opinion, ignorance to a very high level has been shown among Cadance and Veronica. I do not like where their anger has taken them that they have to stoop to such low standards in order to display their anger!!!!! Really must we always be betrayed as "crazy black women"? I am sure I will get a lot of negative feedback and I will except it. I only wish my honest opinion could be given the same respect!
