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).

    Candace love her some Benny as she set him up in his own business and purchase a home for him. I am curious to see if Candace get her son back will she be a good mother or dump Q with Hanna. Something is off w** David as he is not being his usual self. Time for him to see his Doctor. I can not wait for Benny to learn that his lawyer Veronica is responsible for getting Quincy out of prison.

    As I said before, Benny's going 'gangsta' this season! He needs to move out of Hannah's house and get his own place if he's gonna keep messing w/that psycho cougar Veronica! Unbelievable! I knew Hannah would have a fit...I would, too! Maggie will get her vengeance on Veronica and so will David. That little Melissa is a real piece of work, and I hope Jeffrey doesn't buckle under the pressure; she can be dealt with! I wonder how Quincy gets out of jail again...I guess Veronica did it. I sure hope Candace is putting some $$ aside, or investing...she's spending an awful lot of it! That's what happens when you're not used to having money, it all gets spent until there's nothing left to show for it!!! She's not too bright, for a lawyer! I understand she wants to help her brother, but Benny's a grown man, and he can take care of himself! Put some $$ aside to take care of little Q, if she ever does get him back from that thug, Quincy! And WHEN is she going to take the bar exam? And are we going to see that white man again? I think he really does like her, and she likes him, too! I miss Landon!! Wyatt, good luck in prison, dude...be careful what you ask for, you might get it!
