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).

    Mr. Perry, Please advise when we can purchase the first and second seasons of the Haves and the Have Nots. I would love to add to my collection. I have every show of Dallas and would love to add each show of HAHN's to that collection as my favorite shows. Please let us know. Many of us have left messages asking this question before and we have not been given an answer. Thank you.

    I am very much looking forward to the next season of HAHN. The only complaint I have is the season is not long enough! Please consider turning HAHN into a soap opera, then we could watch every week all year long. I say congrats on all of your projects you have going on. Don't let the negative comments get to you; everyone is entitle to their opinon. Keep up the good work TP. If you should ever need someone to play Madea's sister, call me. One thing before I go; please let the g** son pull up his boot strings and stand up to his mama, please!!

    Its a pleasure being celebrated unexpectedly. Hearing caring voices that are always available for you is truly a blessing from God. God definitely know how to send his angels to rescue. Giving God the glory. Its my pleasure to bring close friends a warm smile. Take care Tyler... Not much of a party person but when others love your company.. its a blessing to share heartfelt laughs and true concern of being near you. # another bless day

    I can't wait for the Haves and the Have Nots to return on June 30th, as my Tuesday nights are void at this time. Mr. Perry you are a great writer, director, producer, and a people person. I love most of your shows and movies, and I was very impressed with the party that was thrown at your home for all of your employees at the end of the season. You and Oprah are the best, and may God continue to bless you both.
