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 I think that the cookies are crumbling, it just goes to show that money really isn't power, cause look at these people who think they have power & wealthy, the Cryiers, the Harringtons. Wonder how Benny is going to react when he finds out Veronica is the reason behind Quincy being out of prison. Candace trifling tail. Celine ruthless butt, they don't have the power & strength Hannah has, Hannah she has the power that everyone needs to seek, the knowledge that God Can, God Will & God Has. .. Hannah mustard seed faith. Looking forward to next season. .

    I LOVE IT!!!! HURRAY FOR JEFFREY!!!!! And Veronica's crazy side coming out is a long time coming! Her reign of terror is over. I was sooo sick of her! But Tyler, tighten up with your writing. You're not doing a good job of tying some things together and making the character's dialogues realistic. Like: why didn't Hannah tell Candace Quincy had the baby with him? How could a thug come to your door in broad daylight, dangle a child upside down in the window without ANYONE seeing it? And Benny's car crash takedown: haven't we seen that already in Daddy's Little Girls??? Oh, and from last week-what kind of "POCKET BOOK" power Candace got to make a dude bring her $200,000 in a paper bag just to sleep with her???!!! No c****** is worth that much. Come on Tyler! I love you! Tighten up!

      About the $200,000, we know that John Cryer has that guy to set HER (Candace) up. Should play out good. But how would he have arranged that in one day since his daughter died? That the Tyler Perry thing -days don't make sense. And I do not believe she(Amanda) is dead. Otherwise why so much stuff about not seeing her, about DA not charging a homicide. Candace not so upset except for one time. It will turn out that Jim Cryer has set up her death and has her in an institution. Or the mother did that, or even Candace did that and got the money from Jim Cryer to put her there and is funding it!!!
