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).

    Tyler I think it is beyond stupid for you to agree to do that musical coming up this March on FOX of all networks. Why would you want to add to the ratings of an already juggernaut network? If I was Oprah I would be pissed.

    I love this show, I've even introduced it to my boyfriend who loves it as well. I can't wait to see what happens to Veronica, I hope she reaps what she sowed. I hope David and Catherine come out of it though, especially David....Jan 5th can't come quick enough. God has blessed you with an amazing talent. I hope to become a writer myself (of my own life) but the things you come up with, truly define the gentleman you are! God Bless!

    My whole family are huge Tyler Perry fans . We support all shows and every movie,but the Have and the Have Nots has broken the mold. I love that show and my favorite character is Veronica, because she is the best villain I have ever seen on the TV or big screen. I pray that God continues to bless you and increase your territory. Much love all the way from Garland Texas

    I fell in love with this show and I have no one to talk to about it. I want to buy all seasons so my daughter can watch it so we can have something to talk about because she is at work when it comes on and she will not watch it because she hasn't seen the beginning. When are you putting it out?
