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).

    Is there any way for those of us who have "cut the cord" to watch full episodes? I would love a app to subscribe to like hbo etc does now. OWN network could have it's own app that we could pay to subscribe to like netflix. If there already is a way, someone please advise me. Respectfully, Deborah

      I love "Love thy neighbor" but all the silliness is awful. Nobody laughs at everything and I only watches it because of Hattie because the rest of the cast is kinda stupid. Floyd was never that silly and the two men(boys) need to grow up.

    That scene with Candice and her friend beating the social worker was so hard to watch. Was it really necessary to have Candice display such brutal and cruel behavior? Even if the social worker had been involved (please don't go there) there was no reason for such brutality.

    Mr. Perry, I am a talented writer, actress, comedian and voice over actress. I have been a freelance writer for several newspapers in California. I have written a novel and play also children's books. How come I'm not know...Well, my age, sex and race have held me back. I have been told I write with a White persons voice. I don't know how to write with a Black voice because I grew up in a White community. I have never fitted in either world but I was born with talent. I have struggled and will keep struggling to showcase my talent. I ask God all the time, 'Why did you give me this talent when doors keep closing in my face. I will never stop knocking. I create constantly. Mr. Perry, alway me to send you some of my work because talk is cheap. And, I want to work...and work. Thank you
