Description:

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 think Oscar is working for Jim but will not be able to carry out what he was hired to do because he will fall for Candace.

      Janey and Nippy, you both may be right; I thought Oscar was a 'plant' as well, but he has seen Candace's raw, human, loving side, and he likes it!!! I think he's sprung and will now help her keep her son! She deserves at least that much! Jim is an arrogant DOG, who is now getting what he deserves, being shown up on live tv! And Wyatt isn't going to let his rape go unanswered, especially after Jim's nasty attitude about it, threatening to send him back!!! In fact, the surprise guest just might turn out to be Wyatt at the interview, spilling his guts about what happened to him in jail!

    Hello Mr. Perry, By any chance, can you give my friend David backbone so he can get his balls back from Veronica? Because I don't think it's fair that Jim get to fight and punk people in the face and David like a softy and wimp.

    Aw, Tyler, come on and write in a brain tumor for Veronica or David is not going to make it. Veronica can still handle anything that comes up, even with half of her brain missing!

    Great suspense BUT the music is too loud during key dialogue scenes.

      I totally agree. sometimes I get online and replay over and over a scene to figure out what they are saying.

    tyler perry i enjoy some of your movies, but i dont think you put enough time in writing your script some of the actors need to go back to acting school. i was watching another one of your shows for better or worse maybe it was another one. i had to stop watching it because the actors was terrible. i dont want to see hana playing no maid and i dont need to see white privilige with the cryer family. i support black movies but when they just throw them together i refuse to watch. please do better

    Mr. Perry I want to start off by saying I love you. You are a great representative of what God meant people to be. However, the Haves and have not is no longer believable. The power you give to Jim Cryer is totally unbelievable. Also, in the real world someone like Jim would be beaten by now. The whole prison scene is crazy as Veronica. She would have been beaten down by now. Please keep it real and believable. .

    Tyler, I do not care what anyone says. I like The Haves and Have Nots. Come on people it's a show. It's entertainment just like any other television show. This show is only showing us a taste of what happens in the real world. There are CHRISTIAN. There are some people, with money and power that use what have to get their way. Some women do use their bodies to get wealth, people do get raped in jail men and women, there are G** people and there are people that don't pay attention to their children until it's to late. If you like the show,keep watching if you don't stop watching it! There is a lot of show I don't like so I don't watch them. Tyler thank you for reaching back and bring back a lot of the televisions stars we watched growing up.
