Description:

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).

    I now turn to the Own network f or 90% of my television viewing since the m***** story telling Mr Tyler Perry brought his shows. I understand that the shows are entertainment and not to be used as a moral compass. I love the strong female characters and the complexity of both Veronica and Candace. I am waiting on pins and needles for the new season. All I asked is that you not allow Judge Harrington to be a typical male and yield to temptation. Give me some hope (fantasy) that there are still honorable men.

    Also, I don't think the show is promoting or condoning anything specifically except good fun & entertainment. The law student hooking her way thru school is something that actually happens. Judge Cryer & his family having an addict for a son, a daughter with mental problems, a mother silently fighting cancer and a cheating father does actually happen somewhere. The Harringtons having a g** son with a controlling, dominant mother that refuses to accept that truth and a naive father, also happens in real life. None of this means that Tyler Perry is promoting prostitutes, cheating, addictions or Christianity. It means to me, that he hit the nail on the head in these situations and I applaud him for that. Continue being you, Tyler Perry. Those of us that love you & your shows, love you genuinely.

    What people need to realize first and foremost is the fact that this is television and, therefore, entertainment. didn't know that, in order to have a popular, successful TV show, ALL information needs to be true and correct. The first time I watched the show I didn't know that it was supposed to be somewhat like a soap opera. However, after viewing a few more shows, I started getting into the characters, story line, etc. The bottom line of anything that is on the air, if you don't like it, then don't watch it. Yes, we are entitled to our own opinions, but people analyze things entirely too much. It's entertainment!! I, personally, LOVE the show & even got my significant other to start watching and he enjoys it!! There are numerous different genres of television shows out here from comedy to drama, reality TV & even documentaries. We have a lot to choose from. With that being said, if you don't like it, change the channel!! I love you, Tyler Perry!! Keep doing what you're doing & never falter. ON THE EDGE OF MY BED...WAITING ON THATHN TO COME BACK!!!!
