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).

    at least the show is not boring,,,I THINK IT WAS SOOOOOOOOOOOOO DIRTY of hanna to bring up Candance life to that woman,,,she forgot how Candance ended up that WAY,,,FROM HER MOTHER,,if anything hanna should have offered in a friendly way to be supportive,,not take her child...cuz when candance was raped no one took candance from hanna, now as a grandmother yes care but look at your own past before u start running your mouth,,wyahtt ,,most men that get raped in jail get out and still does g** actions,,some go back to being a woman,,he might end up with Jeffery and someone gets aides,,glad tyler showed the reality of rape in jail none is saved from it,,

    OMG, why did have to make Wyatt get raped? That was so disturbing...I know it's just a television show but I can't get it out of my mind. I felt like I was watching an episode of OZ. Is he going to commit suicide too? That was just horrible...Maybe you rewrite it as a horrible dream..I know I'm asking for much...lol

    • sp chicao #2136573

      hmmmmmmmmmmmm...did you say you didn't know how to take it...its just a show,,sounds like some mental facilty is missing it patient,what u escaped cuz u sound crazy a** h***

    • Nippy Lafayette, LA #2137309

      I did not like that happening to Wyatt either. I surely wish that Tyler had something else in mind other than him being raped.

    I was just reading everyone post, and you all are really good with this, because I wouldn't have never figure out what would be next. But this script Tyler is written is really kind of backwards because in real like you know that know man would be that stupid to let his wife dog him the way David is doing, this really gets on my nerve, and Renee thanks for that information because me and my husband was wondering was Oscar, and plan from Jim or David, this is really gonna mess Candice up after all she has been through in her life with men. and Benny just like a man just dump and I'm kind of shock Candice haven't caught on that he is seeing the old evil lady, that's gonna be a hot mess. Wyatt poor Wyatt once again I got this is Jim favorite words, and someone always end up getting hurt because he got this. Well thanks everyone for filling me end on something I was kind of wondering about. will continue to keep watching to see what season finale will be.

    It really pisses me off that Tyler has made Veronica into a villain & as I posted before I think it's because she does not like the fact that her son is gay, so she has to be crazy. I guess everyone who does not support the g** lifestyle is crazy, huh?...I can't stand Maggie & her putting the moves on David, she is a conniving horse-faced witch & I hope nothing she does works.

      I hope Maggie plan backfire on her as well Always trying to steal our good men even though Veronica is off the rocker right now Let them stay together in sickness and health
