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).

    when I first saw you on television I said to myself......"how long will this guy last." I kept up with show after show and started too realize that your films and plays taught me more about my cultural history than what I would have ever expected. Your life lesson too me is "Never doubt the power of one's Will" Thank you!

      Val, I KNOW.. watching re-runs here and it's the prison scene with the two guys together. That's why I came on this site to see the Dad's real name. Well, I started reading the posts and haven't gotten around to him yet. But the resemblance is uncanny!

    Hello Mr. Perry: I have watched every episode of the Haves and The Haves Nots and enjoyed every minute of it. However this comment is about your movie, Single Moms Club. I am a 70 year-old middle school teacher and finally had an opportunity to watch it with my wife tonignt. As usual with all of your movies and plays, it was a very a well written, entertaining and eye-opening production. However, one aspect of it left me a little bewildered and I question whether it was intentional or an oversight. When May's son left Halley's home on the night she babysat all the children, why was Peter who none of the mothers knew, including Halley chosen as the adult to stay and watch all the children. All the other adults left to search. Not one of the children even knew him. That would be highly impractical, risky and unrealistic, especially in this day and time. Was it an oversight or intentional? If intentional, would you please share the rationale. Thanks for all your great work and may God continue to bless you as you minister to us through your gift.
