Tyler Perry’s Love Thy Neighbor, the new situation comedy by writer and director Tyler Perry is a wonderfully fresh show about a middle class family, and their daily joys, struggles, triumphs, and fumbles. Hattie Mae Love (Patrice Lovely) lives in the simple home that she and one of her husbands bought some time ago. Linda (Kendra C. Johnson) her daughter, splits her time between Hattie’s home and the apartment she sometimes shares with her on-again off-again husband, Lionel. Danny (Andre Hall), Linda’s son, is his mother’s pride and joy. He is young, handsome, smart, and looking for a job. After graduating from college, Danny finds himself on his grandmother Hattie Mae’s sofa. Floyd (Palmer Williams, Jr.), the uncle, through his late brother’s marriage to Hattie Mae, is an ever-present thorn in the family’s side. Like old luggage, they can never seem to get rid of him.

In the first season of this comic tale, Hattie Mae has had enough of grown people living in her house. She puts her foot down and shows the toughest love there is by sending Linda and Danny to the door. Danny moves in with his friend Sam, and Linda eventually helps out down at Hattie Mae’s Love Train Diner.

The Love Train is an old locomotive car converted to a diner that serves up all of Hattie Mae’s old recipes. It is the neighborhood hang out spot that, along with great food, serves up a whole lot of fun. As Linda and Floyd commit to help Hattie Mae with the family business, blessings abound. Soon the customers multiply, and so do the laughs, the drama, and the love of a very comical family.

With the help of Danny’s new roommate Sam (Jonathan Chase), Danny soon lands a job at an internet design firm. Danny proves to be a star there. However living and working with Sam, a 30-year-old who is trapped in his teens, will prove to be more of a nightmare than Danny could ever imagine. As the parties get wilder, the women get crazier, and Danny’s young life becomes a humorous tale of dodging fanatical friends, and eccentric family members.

Nevertheless, Danny begins to excel at his new position when the Chicago office sends the beautiful Marianna to take over as boss of the Atlanta office. Marianna quickly falls in love with Danny’s work ethic and virtuous character. As a close knit team and family, the young twenty & thirty something’s embark on a number of adventures that go along with being young professionals in a contemporary & technical society.

All in all, Tyler Perry’s Love Thy Neighbor is a collection of stories that warm the heart, provoke thought, and always serves up a heap of laughs. Through all the changes, there is one constant, and that is the universal language called Love. It’s all about love.

    I am sooooo team Linda and Phillip. I'm a full-figured woman and this storyline has my acting like a crackhead trying to get the next fix. I have so many possible ideas about the Linda and Phillip characters.

    Hey wassup Mr Perry. I am an admirer of Kendra C Johnson and I think she is the bomb. I don't know if she single but if she is I would love to get to know her. She is just the beez knees... anyway I am a fan and I love the show!! keep them coming.

    My first impression of "Love They Neighbor" when I first saw the previews was not positive. I think the acting can be a bit more realistic. Somehow I kept watching the episodes and inspite of the acting, the show is quite entertaining and funny as the d******* It took a new life. The actors are truly comical with their lines and the mother is hilarious with her down in the hood antics. You never know what Ms. Hattie is going to say next. I like that. Her character reminds me of one of my characters I wrote about some years ago. Keep up the good work people. Sincerely, Cherrrie

    I think that Linda is Philip's one true love but I think that Linda doesn't deserve to feel like that. If Philip goes out on another date put Cheryl Pepsii Riley in it because Linda would get very jealous because she is beautiful

    I hope you keep "Love Thy Neighbor" alive!!! I stay up just to see what will happen next with Linda, Hattie and the rest of the gang. It's so funny!!! Thanks for the laughs! Love & happiness, Tasha

    I love "Love thy neighbor". I do not miss an episode. I love Ms Hattie's character. As far as Linda goes, don't let the relationship with her and Phillip happen so soon. Let her pursue him like he did not her. Let her fight for her man. I love the suspense each week because it makes you tune in the next week to find out what is going to happen. I am glad that you got rid of Will because he was not the man for Linda.

      I agree. I could not stand Will. I also cannot wait each week to see the suspense-filled episodes. Keep up the good work Tyler. You are a genius.

    I love the show and never miss an episode. I hope in a future episode Will and his con-artist wife are prosecuted, so Linda can learn even more about his criminal background, then she can get him out of her system once and for all and also it would give an opportunity for Hattie Mae to act up in court. Next, I hope Danny gets a backbone and starts standing up more for himself and his family. Maybe the relationship with Phillip will not only help Linda with her insecurities but also help Danny to Man-Up little bit more. Also Danny and Drew should finally start dating secretly, while the remaining characters trying to figure out the situation (i.e. spying and comparing notes). Finally, I hope Hattie Mae and Floyd have more interactions with the customers at the diner (i.e. complaining about the food and service, not leaving tips, etc...) and also have the health inspector return, since he also has a history with Linda, which would give additional competition to Phillip, since Will is in jail. I hope you like my suggestions for the show. God bless you Mr. Perry and I wish you continued success.

    I love this show, I get off work at six and I rush home to fix my lunch, get my clothes out for the next day, and take a bath just so I can be up on my bed watching when it comes on. It is so funny to me, I recently lost my mom and I had recorded the show during the time of her death and I seem to be having a hard time getting over her but when I turn on the tv and watch Grandma Hattie Mae, that was my mom name also, I just smile and not cry. Thanks for such a great show, I love it. Thanks, DEEDEE
