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 think it is time to get rid of Veronica and Wyatt. When will Candace get a hold of Oscar and please let the contract hit on Veronica go through. David needs a new woman in his life and stop making him so d*** naïve.

    OMG... MR. TP DON'T STOP, PEOPLE VOICES THEIR OPINIONS LIKE THEIR A** HOLES. EXCUSE MY FRENCH. EVERYBODY GOT ONE DIRTY OR CLEAN! THIS WORLD IS A REVOLVING CIRCLE FROM H*** TO HEAVEN. WE ALL HAVE A CHOICE TO CHOOSE AND WHO THEY WANT TO SERVE EACH NEW DAY. IF WE CAN SEE OUR LIVES DISPLAYS THROUGH ONE OF THESE CHARACTERS, WE ALL WOULD CHANGE TO GET ALONG AND MAKE THIS WORLD AS GOD HAS DESIGNED IT TO BE, WHICH IS WE ALL ARE CREATED UNIQUE AND ONE OF A KIND PRICELESS JEWEL. OUR WAYS ARE NOT GODS WAYS OR INDIVIDUAL OPINIONATED WAY. THE GREATEST OF ALL IS TO LOVE EACH OTHER AS CHRIST LOVES US IN A UNIQUE ONE OF A KIND WAY WHICH IS PRICELESS. KEEP DOING WHAT GOD SAYS TO DO AND LEAN NOT UNTO YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING. WITH MAN THINGS ARE IMPOSSIBLE...BUT WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. SO DO U MR. PERRY AND I AM PRAYING FOR YOU TO KEEP IT REAL. GOD GOTTCHA AND I AM PRAYING CONTINUOUS MIRACLES AND DELIVERANCE COME FORTH THROUGH ALL YOUR MESSAGES AND VIEWS IN JESUS NAME. KNOW THAT NO WEAPONS FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPEROUS! AMEN

      How can you bring God into this unholy mess of a show? Nothing but greed, violence and people getting away with too much with no consequences. I am shocked that a Christian man like Tyler could put such un-Godly trash on tv. No moral or Christian messages anywhere.

      Well put, Such filth for someone who professes to know God!! Yes there is drama in the world, but to add to it!! Really!! He has the capabilities to produce shows that uplift and inspire. Granted whats going on with Bill Cosby, at least his shows were inspirational to uplift. Oh the days of yester-years-Good Times, Growing pains. Such filth on television today.

      Stan, when you are trying to get rating for some reason it has to have some filth in it. It's getting grimmer and grimmer. It's not a Christian show. It's playing to both worlds. That's why you have most R&B singers that came out the church. They only get rich when they stop singing gospel and cater to both worlds unfortunately. Everytime I think about Whitney it grieves me. So blessed, talented, anointed had it all ........but it's a fine line to walk. If you want the ratings, popularity,rich and fame you have to cater to both worlds. .

    Tyler What a magnificent show. I am proud of Jeffrey, Glad he told that cop off. I hope his mother finds out. Good for Hanna For telling Katheryn off. David and her must think she is stupid. Hanna a smart woman. Every one is playing their parts very well. Quita is a good actress. She is so believable. This show should have gotten a NAACP award. I was not happy that it didn't get nominated. It should have. You Tyler show have gotten one for best writing and directing. Can't wait until the last show on Tuesday.

    The acting alone makes this show impossible to watch. The story line involving Candace attacks on the assistant and the social worker were unnecessary. The energy spent on "money" is 77 x 7 more than her interest in little Q. TP... suggestion... focus more on the psychosocialeconomic of finance rather than this violence. In the real world.. Quincy's Battery should be dead by now.

    Why are blacks portrayed as drug addicts and slum residents on this show? Why must we have so many dirty policemen? There is too much of this going on now and it is not entertaining. I quit watching the news to watch this series only to see more dirty policeman and druggers/murderers all black. Not entertaining. We can do better than this.

    Can't Tyler Perry have a few more white or other nationalities locked up. When Quita was standing in line trying to speak to Veronica, I noticed that all the women were black except for one. I'm so tired of seeing our people stereotyped as criminals.

    Sooner or later they will find Quincy's body. I don't know why Benny and Candace think that they can get away with burying a body in the back yard. Now what is Benny going to do to War when he finds out about him and Candace! It's Candace's own fault. Now big brother will be fighting her battles again, which is beginning to get pretty boring. Pretty soon, someone will take Benny out. He thinks that he's such a big thug. I don't like Mitch, Benny trusts the wrong people all the time.

    I just can't STAND Quita!! She looks like a wild woman and she talks like a ghetto country bumpkin!!! PLEASE get rid of her soon; I can't take it! And I'm getting so sick of Candace and her flunky heifer; they both need to be done away with! Poor Landon; *and for once, Jeffrey actually showed some 'manhood' and stood up for himself w/that officer; he had him figured out from the beginning, and made him feel like a closet chump! **I hope Hannah doesn't let Catherine try to use emotional blackmail on her...tell her if she doesn't hand over your $$$, you'll go right to the police and tell them what her son did to YOUR son and that little girl! All her blubbering and whining won't change the facts: they created a spoiled, entitled, druggie w/no regard for other people, but they think $$ can buy anything and anyone...not this time! ***Now let Veronica go home and get what's coming to HER!

    Oh, Tyler Perry, you deserve nothing but kudos for your outstanding show "The Haves and The Have Nots". This is by far the best show on television today. I can hardly wait for the next week's episode and actually outrun the week until it comes on. As an avid fan please allow me to perform so I can help to get those lowdown conniving scoundrels Oscar, Veronica and Jim. I will even rent my own tank to take the aforementioned villains out. In actuality, all the characters were well chosen and play their respective roles well. Mr. Perry, you have outdone yourself again! Joyce Coleman Detroit, MI
