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).

      Winners don't go around seducing other women's husbands, or abandon their baby and keep them from a loving grandmother.

    Hi Tyler, I really got stuck on The Haves and the Have Nots. I like it simply because it does wake you up about today's society especially more so since Homesexuality has became considered legal in the USA. However, people need to understand just because it is legal in man's law, it is NOT legal by GOD's law. We as Christians must still love each other no matter what their choices are but we do not have to totally accept it in our own private lives. The Haves and the Have Nots really shows the issues people have with their hormones, living up to parents and societies expectations--but one BIG one is that it shows how it really creates so much chaos hiding so many secrets. Everyone has skeletons in their closet but they must remember, God knows you inside and out and knows where the closet is long before you think about it. Opening up, but to those who really care and know you and God, is really a great unburdening state that we all have to do ONE Day! Tell the truth, did you have to change this death issue of the Judge's daughter suddenly or was that in the PLAN?

Sometimes when I watch them again, I catch something else that I missed the 1st time. Amanda's dealth, just made it more spicy, and more drama in the House.
