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.

    Hi Tyler, you are doing a fantastic job with all my favorite shows. So happy to hear Love Thy Neighbor is returning, just wish it was more convenient to watch for so many people who doesn't have the OWN channel. Maybe you and Oprah can work on making OWN channel more convenient for viewers. Also, why isn't there any reruns, On Demand, DVD, Streaming, Netflix of your shows. Those who are a true fan would like to watch previous episodes of your shows as we are able to with Meet the Browns and House of Paynes. AND....bring House of Paynes and Meet the Browns back on. Maybe FOX will be willing to pick you up since they are trying to incorporate Afro American shows. Love You! Congrats on your new babyboy!

  • Ronnie Love

    Tyler, I love all your productions but definitely look forward to what's next on "Love Thy Neighbor". The story line of the show reminds us our own families, deals with the issues that single women face and an inspiration. I love that you've added Tony Grant to the show, he's a great actor I've seen in in several of your plays and his appearance has been a great attraction to the flavor of the show. I enjoy all the cast they are hilarious but Miss Hattie (Patrice Lovely) keep[ you in stitches!! God bless you and your future endeavors !!

    "Love Thy Neighbor" is your show that most touches me. I can relate whole heartily to Linda and Danny. Really, to all the family. I was most proud of the climax of this season. Kendra and Tony was so great in the last show; it was so touching to see their love affair begin with all his understanding revealed in his proposal song and her acceptance of this knowledge without fears. I truly wish you would decide to put this show on DVD, sometimes we need happy endings to bring us through. And I do need it to complete my Tyler Perry collection of plays, movies and shows. Great casting**** Can't wait to see what next season offers. God truly uses your talent to reach the heart of us all. Thanks for yielding.
