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 don't know what's going on here, but I have a hard time posting, but hopefully I can get it right this time. First, I would like to congratulate Mr Perry and the OWN Network for a job well done! This past Tuesday, the viewership of THATHN was 2.84 million. And if I'm not mistaken, that is the highest ratings yet, since the first show aired back in May of last year. I hope that Oprah will request more shows for the future. I will give my comments on the characters in my next post. Peace...

    Who wears the pants in the Harrington house? It seems to me that Judge Harrington could go to the bank and set up an account in his son's name so that he'll have access to some $$$; who cares what Veronica thinks? I'm so disappointed in her...to speak that way of her own child! Why doesn't Jeffrey use Candace's phone to call his father, or better yet, show up @his dad's office and ask for some $$? He had $$ enough to go to Wyatt's house in a cab, GO SEE YOUR FATHER AND GET SOME $$$! Veronica doesn't have to know! s

    41 minutes of story time is not enough. You should extend it to 81 minutes or twice a week.

    Candace sleeps with her college professor so she can blackmail him to give her passing grades in law school. It appears he is putting her on a fast, lying, cheating track to her law license! Who knows what she will do next! She is a evil woman :-)

      Her professor gave her that letter because he believes she's putting Amanda up to harassing him. Candace was clueless. She has no idea what Amanda has been up to. Candace should lesson to Jeffery when he warns her that Amanda is really mentally unstable.
