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).

      This series leaves me every week wanting to see more and on the edge of my seat waiting for Tuesday evening. I am addicted to Have and the Have nots. I was very good upset the show was over for the season. Couldn't wait to see what would happen. Now I am again captivated. As the other shows also but this one is my favorite. Thanks Tyler.

    ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SOAP! A welcome change from the crappy Soaps on daytime television. My only question is: When are we going to see Vanessa Harrington's Mom (played by none other than DIANNAH CARROL) show up and wreck havoc in Savannah? Surely Vanessa's Mom can fill us in on what's going on with her daughter and who better to play that role but Ms. Carrol! I can totally see Ms. Carrol going up against Jim & Katherine Cryer - can't you? How about a cameo appearance by The Lady Chablis (for a little comedy)? KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK TYLER PERRY- LOVE YOU!
