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 saw that on the OWN line up and it makes no d*** sense. Why don't they just start with season one episode one and play straight through leading up to the new episodes? I am so sock of the games they play with the fans regarding this show. Ugh! Now it's gonna come on for two months and then disappear again for God only knows how long....whatever???

    I left a message on the all selection. My request is minor to you but major for me. You man of God is my only hope and it has taken me 3yrs to find the courage to submit the request. I pray that God puts it in your heart to help. Please don't laugh at my medical issue. You please continue to work closely with God. A New York looks stupid right now. My disappointment is that more Africa American aren't in this fight with you. The reason Rhianna turned you down is because she don't want to acknowledge God and her agent told her working for God would kill your career. She won't go far. When you deny Jesus Christ, He will deny you to His father. Because of your faith and dedication to Jesus Christ you have prospered. Continue on and just see how far God will take you and your viewers. You continue to be blessed and a blessing to others. Thanks in advance. Disable in Huntsville Texas.
