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 am a True TP fan and I have been following your work from day 1. I wasn't going to leave a comment until I read some of the nasty and rude comments on here. Now everything is not for everyone and everyone is entitled to their opinion. But being rude is really not called for. So Mr. Tyler Perry, I truly appreciate your love for God and you are truly blessed. You have a gift and not everyone gets it. I won't be negative, but I feel if you dont like something, then don't watch it! I LOVE this show and everything you touch (producing, writing or even starring in). Your spirit is uplifting and you always find a way to leave me with something in each movie/play/tv program. I have learned so much from the messages that you send out in your work. Your plays have gotten me through some bad times in my life and I am grateful I was able to receive the messages you sent. I appreciate how you take people with talent and shine the bright light on them. (Craig Lewis Band) for example. Those boys can sang!!! I could go on and on about how I love your work and please keep Blessing us with your work and I will continue to be one of your biggest fans. Let the haters hate, thats what they are good at!!!!

    Tyler i think you are a very creative and powerful writer. When you write you use story lines that hit home for many people, and then you add a twist to it. I hope to meet you one day. I have always wanted to write a novel. I think i am going to sit down and be creative. I hope that i am as creative as you. Thank you for the night time soap operas and movies. May God bless you always!
