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 love this series. Veronica is off the chain. I love it. Candace is still my girl. I wanted Bennie to date but WOW. I am speechless. I do not want David to have an affair. It is good to see a black man with integrity. Last year, I was unsure which way you where going to take Jeffrey. an truly since the young lady is pregnant. I am lost which direction that he is going to end up. So I have to watch because of Veronica, Benny, Jeffrey and Wyatt are unpredictable.

      I read those hateful comments. I'm not saying that they should not have a voice; I'm just saying sour grapes. How long have they been in the business? Where is their body of work? If you don't like the work don't watch. I don't know Tyler I'm hooked miss the first two of the season; but because I DVR the show it wasn't a problem. I know you know better than believe most of the naysayers? Don't want to be corny but I pray you live long and prosper. Keep doin what your doin. Yours since your Philly shows.

    Great show, no disappointments, no dissatisfaction regarding the Haves and Have-nots or If Loving You is Wrong, keep them coming, you're the writer Tyler P., don't listen to some of these critics who probably never even miss a show; plus they don't pay you...follow your vision and continue to get those high ratings and make that money honey, that's it, that's all. Love your work... :)

    Mr. P, after reading the three posts to the right in black/w white writing, I need to ask if you do read and if you do care about what people are feeling, especially those who are not AA. I think not.

  • Patricia Owens Chicago,Ill

    Tyler please it's time up for Veronica having sooo much power over not only poor David but everyone else, she and Candice are a bit much they actually could have been mother and daughter duo.I've watched from the beginning, not just this but all of your shows and plays,but it's so unrealistic and quite frankly boring for these two. It was so very nice to see when Catherine knocked Candice out cold, I'm sure most got excited to see that.I strongly think that a man should never ever strike a woman but Jeffrey or David someone please slap any and all the taste out of Veronicas' mouth she is so disrespectful enough is enough Tyler!!! Please.
