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 hear ya Deborah, I'm also in St. Pete and was shocked to see Brighthouse Networks post that message. I get both analog and digital channels, but for some reason cannot get the digital channel that they switched this show to....real bummer! I cannot even stream it through Amazon. So I guess the show lost at least 2 of us viewers in St. Pete.

    Hello, T.P. enjoying the show. Once a week is a long time to wait, but I have know choice. lol. I look at the parts that the casts play as facts of life. I read and see the different complaints of other's. I think the show is right on point on what's going on in the world, and it is a known reality that it is no way near are near perfect. Would we like it to be sure we would. You just keep doing what you have been doing. As we know every will not be please. Thanks to OWN for airing your sitcom's/series. Thank's

    When is Jeffery going to grow a pair? He's a grown man but still acts like he's a kid.

    I faithfully watch this show, but it is too slow, and presents like a play. All the characters are just talking, standing or sitting around. Even the housekeeper doesn't seem to have anything to do. And shouldn't the two families have busier schedules since the husbands are running for office? Shouldn't Jim be busier than he is? Never any meetings in his office, at his house.... And why doesn't Wyatt do anything besides stay locked up on his room? In reality he would definitely be back on drugs with all the stress he is under. Just sayin

    What happened to Benny? His acting skills has gotten bad since he was in a coma. He acts like he's "slow" Love the show though.

      I enjoy and look forward to Tuesday nights. Please don't make us wait so long for the next season. I know its sounds awful but, I think Candace baby shouldn't be dead because that will close the door on Mother & daughter relationship. The baby should have some kind of a physical condition that requires round the clock nursing care. JUST LOVE, LOVE THIS SHOW..

    Hands down on Gavin Houston! He's awesome. The car scene with him and his mother (Angela Robinson), AMAZING! It made me kind of upset with her Tyler, and that's why it was amazing! Wow...

    Tyler, I absolutely love your work and creativity. However, Benny's character (Whewww!), why is he so angry? He was not as angry, nor as confident last season. He was more humble. Now, he's awake from his coma and immediately is flirtatious, rude and arrogant, just snappy. Maybe it's from the coma??? I don't get it. Now, I'm watching the episode about him coming home (Benny's Party), and he cries while hugging and kissing his mother, I loved that scene (very sincere). Well it was a bit ruined because a neighbor says hello and says hello back , but he acts like he wasn't just crying, his emotional transitions are not smooth... he really needs a character analysis session badly. Thank you for having this message center and hearing our voices!

    Hello Tyler I found this morning that I will not be able to watch the Haves And The Have because my cable network brighthouse has taken Own off their network the only way to watch we have to buy a digital box to watch 2 station they removed. I will buy a box to watch it. I don't understand the reasoning behind it and besides people don't have extra money to buy a box just for 2 stations. You have out done yourself with this show. I'm sorry that I can no longer watch due to my stupid cable network

      I'm also in the boat of not being able to watch The Haves and the Have Nots. I'm not happy about Brighthouse Cable moving Own to digital. I can no longer watch your program because I can't afford to rent their digital box. They ruin everthing. Sorry, Mr. Perry!
