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).

    Tyler, keep up the good work. I love Tuesdays. I think I'm a bigger fan of HAHN but when If Loving You is on I can't wait to see the next episode of it. I Love Candace and Veronica. Both of these ladies have me on the edge of my seat. I see one of your fans wants the two of them to fight, my money would be on Veronica.

    When can I by the Boxed 1st and 2nd seasons of the "Haves and Have Nots. I would like to add these to my collections. This is my favorite show. Since this has gone off for the season, I refuse to watch anything else on OWN. Any idea as to when this soap will come back on? This is the 2nd time I have asked about buying these, and I have not received an answer yet!! May I hear from you? Thanks.

    It is my personal opinion that the show was well put together. After scrolling through some of the comments I began to "feel some type of way". I don't know why people would have a problem with the way in which the show was scripted. I think that your thought process in regards to this show was exactly what the world had been waiting on. I can agree that the show is comparable to that of a soap opera. However, I do feel as though it is the best soap opera that has come out. I also like the fact that you deal with real life issues. Those not liking the show are entitled to their own opinions but sometimes people need to keep their negative comments at bay. I would hope that criticism of this nature pushes you even harder/closer to your ultimate goals in all that you have worked for. May the Higher Power continue to bless you in all that you do.

    I LOVE, LOVE this show. I have read some previous comments. TP does not promote homosexuality, hookers, he writes about them. I guess people think he promotes a gun toting grandma that does things Madea (HELL YEA) does. Lets face it, he is a genius. There has not been ANYTHING that he has written, played in, directed that I dislike. Look where he came from! He'll he was sleeping in in car. You say he only promotes black actors. I say SOMEONE needs to. You say he is an advocate for gays? I say it is STILL needed. I am a white, married woman with children, who when I feel they are old enough, plan to share all of Mr. Perry's films with
