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, my DVR is now 91% full because I have to record all of this show so that I can watch it again and again. You are a very talented and gifted young man and I absolutely love this show. I know you will not go too far over the top because you are a God fearing man so I think I can continue to watch this one without the Holy Spirit convicting me for the thing that I pour into my spirit. God bless you

    Tyler, this show is awesome. I can't wait until the next episode comes on. I would really like to have all seasons of the show to add to my dvd collection. Will they ever be put on dvd? Please do so, because I would love to be able to go back and watch them. Please, please release a dvd collection. Love all your work!!!

    Most of Tyler Perry's movies, especially the comedies, are kind of stupid, so I started to not watch HAHNs when I first heard about it. But I decided to see what was happening on it anyway and I must say that this is the first drama that actually keeps me glued to my seat! I love the characters - all of them. I'm just not into the g** thing, but this is fastly approaching all soap operas now. I record all shows especially soaps, so I can just fast forward the g** parts. Nothing against them as people, just don't approve that kind of lifestyle. Every time I think the next season or show on HAHN can't get any better, it surprises me again and I'm actually surprised that this is a Tyler Perry show. He has apparently hired some really good writers to come up each show. Absolutely LOVE HAHNs and always look forward to the next week's show!

    I really, really love this show. I look forward to watching it every Tuesday. I watch the previous shows starting at 7:00 pm through the new episode. I get a glass of water and continue watching again just in case I missed something. When the last show for that night goes off at 3:00 am then I go to sleep. Thank you, thank you, thank you Mr. Perry for this and all your many works. I own a number of them. Not only are they entertaining, but thought provoking, interesting, insightful and informative. Awesome!!! I pray God continues to bless you and your gift.
