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'm so addicted to this show it's great considering you think you know how it's going to go then there's a little twist. Congrats on you child because i'e followed your carrier & story from day one i cried with the different adversities you had to go through "the Devils A Liar". I had to say that, but please make another season there are a few areas that need closure. Why didn't David smell the smoke or feel the heat? Veronica wow she's off the hook & where's the baby omg it's so great i admire and respect all of your work i especially love Alex Cross but that's off topic thank you for allowing me to leave a comment looking forward to yet another great season you have to give the people what they want lol. Much Respect & Thanks again

    I love this show. I just can not get enough of it. This is truly the best sow on tv. I do not care how good they say the empire is. This show should run everyday like The Young and the restless. I just need to know how long I have to wait this time for the show to start back again. The amazing part is that every person that plays on the show is excellent. I am happy g or Crystal Fox to be playing in just an excellent show. I followed her when she played in The Heat of the Night. Thank you so much Tyler Perry for making such an excellent show. I know that the next season is going to be out of this world. I can not wait.
