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).

    I am super anxious to see season 3 and I cannot wait for 5/27 to come! I love how the cast and TP live tweets during each episode. With the cast live tweeting while the fans watch the show just makes me so excited to be fan since I know that they can see my opinions on the show. Keep it up with all of your brilliant pieces of work that you put out there and for having cast members with such amazing talent on all of your shows. Im just jealous that I did not get the chance to be apart of the audience on your TP show on OWN, but its ok!LOL Keep up the great work TP!

      Hello to all who post on this and to those just passing though. I heard people talking about this series, and 99% of it was positive. Of course it raised my interest. So I checked it out on line. Like WOW, I became hooked and a true fan after the first 2 episodes. I just finished season 1 which has 26 episodes, in less then a week. I'm now sharing it with every one I come in contact with. I am hyped. Loving it. Tylor Perry put his foot in this one. "you go boy!"

    I miss you tonight... I seen your H*** Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorned play tonight in Syracuse and I must say it was everything that I had hope for and more besides you not being there. The cast was awesome I really enjoyed myself, it was very hilarious, entertaining and as always had a strong message. I am so happy you was able to come to Syracuse. I recently moved here from NYC and was afraid I wouldn't catch your plays anymore. I look forward to seeing more of your plays here in Syracuse in the future.
