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).

    Whoever thinks that life doesn't happen this way their wrong because money talks and if you have enough of it anythings possible. The rich get away with with things and the poor normally gets screwed!

      Is Tyler Perry gay, thats why he has so many men portraying to be gay.What the heck? Thid is not the way real life is.Candance would be dead by now.No woman lets another woman use her like she does, and now, even though Jeffrey is not gay, what about that new guy on the scene, who likes Jeffrey? Even though Tyler has a child, he is still in the closet, and he and Oprah are Not real Christians, and users.Why not have positive feedback instead of all this sin going on?

      You need to worry about what you are instead of trying to figure someone else out. have you ever heard the saying , sweep around your own front door. who gave you the right to speak about someone christianity and what they relationship with God is. Stop trying to figure his realtionship with God out and start perfecting your own because you are the one who has to answer to him for yourself. Carry on!! I Love you Tyler

    This is a Have and Have Not site for fans to discuss the show. Keep your snide, ugly, destructive, and criticizing statements to yourselves. This is NOT an Empire propaganda site nor is it an Angie's list to discuss personal experiences about HIV care received from holistic providers.
