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).

    Can't WAIT to see Candace get her revenge on Jim! I hope they keep Quincy, and they can let Amanda go now; she's clearly reached the end of her thread! I think she'll commit suicide. I'm predicting Jeffrey will finally grow a pair and get w/Brandon and tell Veronica to shove it! And I'm sure Veronica will get some revenge on David and Maggie for sleeping together! Should be a good season...

    I agree with L, from Las Vegas. I can no longer afford to keep the satellite service that allows me to watch OWN. Please Tyler and Oprah, make your shows available on Hulu, Netflix, or Amazon (which ARE affordable) so that those of us who can't afford satellite or cable can enjoy your work. Thanks for allowing us to vent on this site.

    Does anyone from the Oprah Network ever respond? Would like to know, like tons of other people, whether they plan on putting The Haves and Have Nots on DVD, On Demand, Netflix, or wherever so it can be purhased? I'm sure the network is making tons of money and wants to keep the mystique going. But enough is enough! Can we get a response from the Network powers that be regarding purchase of this show and others, like For Better or Worse?

    Hello, Mr.Perry; I just want to say Thank You so much for creating such an amazing prime time soap opera drama series. Tyler Perry's The Haves and The Have Nots will soon become the #1 hit prime time drama series in 2015. I pray that it will because the characters are very intriguing and the secrets and drama just keeps getting better and better. I really want this show to get a lot of awards. The 2 characters that people are dying to see are Jim and Candace, now that Jim made his plans to scare Candace, it's now Candace's turn to make Jim suffer. I want to say again Thank You and good luck to you. I wish you once again the best of luck. God Bless you and your family, and especially to your newborn son. God Bless You, Mr.Perry
