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).

    Why is the close captioning so messed up on this and other own shows?

    I just have one question..... Will Quincy EVER change his clothes? It would be nice to see him in something different.... like a suit and tie especially when and if he gets the chance to go to the hotel to look for his Candy. Also, why is Quincy looking for Candy? According to the story line he is in love with Candace... I guess we will see what happens next week. Benny is really not a good actor and he needs to calm down and get a life. Benny's character is so focused on his mama and sister I guess he forgot about having a little me time. I am sure needs some TLC right about now, not unless he practicing abstinence. Anyways, I guess this was pretty good tonight, however I am still watching it.

    real love spell caster that is truely real , i am Sarah Parker from London, UK. Here is my amazing testimony about 9 years in marriage with my lovely wedded husband Steven, he divorced me and got separated from me and my kids, and left home to another lady. I did all i could to get him back, but they all proved abortive. Until one faithful day, an old friend of mine Jessica, who work at the same company with me, told me about a great spell caster on the Internet who helped her in a similar issue and also with financial problems too. At first, i doubted it, but I decided to give it a try. When i contacted him, he helped me cast a powerful binding lovers spell, and within 48 hours, my ex husband came back, pleading and apologizing to me, that he is so sorry for hurting me and my kids, and I forgive him. Today, we are so happy together, with abundant love, joy, happiness and riches. With our 3 kids, a boy and two girls. You too can contact this great and amazing spell caster today, on any problems you having now, via his private email: you so much great one, I won't forget your good works on my family.Phone: +474 Website:

    Tyler Perry is a wonderful writer and producer. My husband and I love to watch all of his shows. We look forward every Tuesday. . Congratulations Tyler on your new born baby. May God Bless you and Keep up the great work. I was writing a book, but I stopped, because I found out the exhusband could sue me. Tyler, your TV shows should be two hours, instead of one hour. Have a great day! Liz

    My name is williams martinez.I do not know how to thank Dr. Trust for bringing happiness back to my family. i do really wanna tell the whole world that there is a spell caster called Dr.Trust that is so real and genuine. I never believed in any of these things but when i lose my wife for 4 years, i required help until i found a great spell caster, and he cast a love spell for me, and he assured me that I will get my wife back in just 48hours but i was in doubt, and after the spell has been cast, 48hours later, just as the spell caster said, my phone rang, and surprisingly it was my wife who has not called me for the past 4 years, and she made an apology for the pain she has caused me and she told me that she is ready to come back home for me. Dr.Trust really made her to know how much i loved and needed her. And he also opened her eyes to picture how much love we have to share together. With this testimony right now i am the happiest man on earth and our love is now stronger than how it was even before. I will keep sharing this testimony all over the world. All thanks goes to Dr.Trust for the good work that he has done for me and people he has helped. Believe him and do all he ask you to do and never doubt him in any way.via : +231

    What a beautiful and wonderful testimony. Sometime things you don't believe can just happen. My name is tanya willians . Am 25 years old i got married at the age of 24 i have only one child and i was living happily. After one year of my marriage my husband behavior became so strange and i don't really understand what was going on, he packed out of the house to another woman i love him so much that i never dream's of losing him, i try my possible best to make sure that my husband get back to me but all to no avail i cry and i cry seeking for help. i discussed it with my best friend and she promise to help me he told me of a man called Dr. PAUL , he is a very great man and a real man that can be trusted and there is nothing concerning love issues he cannot do that is why they call him Dr. PAUL . I contacted his email address.And i told him everything that happen all he told me that i should not worry that all my problems will be solved immediately. He told me what to do to get my husband back and i did, he said after One hour my husband will come back to me and start begging, it really happen i was very surprise and very, very happy our relationship was now very tight and we both live happily again. So my advice for you now is to contact this same email address is visit his web site
