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).

    HAHN, being formatted like a soap opera, is one of the best pieces produced by Mr. Perry. That being said, does any one know if, in true soap opera style, this show will eventually be aired year 'round?

    I would love to watch the have and the have nots. I've been hearing about this show from almost everyone I know but unlike them I don't have cable and can't afford it. However I do have Netflix and would love it if I could enjoy this show. Please consider adding this show and others to Netflix. Thanks Lady D.

    I would like to know if there is a way to see the " Haves" without having cable tv? I am retired and on a fixed income now and cannot afford cable so I no longer can see my favorite show. Please tell me if there is a way I can still see this show. I love it. Thanks, Carole Felicia

    Hello Mr. Perry, I have been a fan of your work for many years. I am writing to find out if it is possible for me to buy the haves and have nots season 1 episodes. I have looked everywhere, from amazon, hulu tv, and the Own channel but no one has those first season episodes for me to purchase. I have the 2nd season recorded but feel I will not understand because of the history from the previous season. I have been waiting so long to get the episodes. All of my friends and family love this show and I want to be apart of it. Is it possible to have Own start from the beginning from season 1 or if I can purchase it. I'm sorry if I am a pain, I just would like to enjoy more of your work. Thank you, Remmie
