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).

    Hooked on the show ..... Last nights episode was good but Hannah, as much as I like her, overreacted ... It could have been done in a better way. ... This is a time for the family to pull together for this child ... He has gone thru enough .... Actually, all of them could move in that house that Candy has brought or Hannah and Benny together in the house that was bought for Benny .... They just needs to put the pettiness aside ........Speaking of pettiness, Ronica needs to be stopped, like yesterday .... she is getting way out of control....she has become the lowest of the low ....Katheryn, Jim, Ronica and David needs some type of punishment for the cover - up......and please rid Q, they should not have to keep living in fear, especially with lil Q ...let it go............ oh, and we need to know more about Ronicas' and Davids' ( Is she acting out because of an affair he has had before, etc, ?? .................#WeAreObsessed........

    Hanna did not have to tell child protective about Candace history and short comings. I am sadden by Hanna behavior as I was hoping Q would bring mother and daughter closer instead of further apart. Veronica is using Benny as a male prostitute and it's time for him to get paid for screwing the old broad. Make Veronica pay for her pleasure. Jim is going to regret beating up Professor Canon as it will go viral. Maggie Day put on your thinking CAP and gather all the info you can about the CAR. Benny is so d*** and stupid he might just give you the car that Veronica wants destroy. After what Veronica had the inmate to do to Wyatt in prison it's time to bring MaMA Rose back to take Veronica out. Looks like Candace mess up as the previews shows the child protective worker demanding that she leave the hospital. CAndace actions may lead to Q being put in foster care.

    I love the show. It's my Tuesday night obsession. I love Veronica's crazy tail,and Candice she helps make the show.Please give Candice the chance to raise her son. She needs the chance to prove it to no one but herself that she can be a great mother. And Oscar is too good to be true. I have a feeling that he might be working for Jim to help get all of Jim's $ back from Candice, but I truly hope not. Oscar, I think is what Candice needs to bring that goodness out of her. So I hope he truly like her . Thank you for putting some good entertainment on tv. Let the haters be your motivation to keep making this show the best it can be Mr.Perry , because you have more lovers of the show than you have haters. God bless you and yours.

    Tyler PLEASE DONT give Candace son to her mom like that's so not right she's been wanting her son and for a mother to down talk her own child like that is beyond wrong. PLEASE give Candace her son!!!!!

      It's better for Q to be placed in foster care temporary to give Candace time to get herself together.

    I wish they would tone done the background music. It is difficult to hear the dialogue because it's too loud. I'm not the only person who feels that way. It's too loud and it's distracting!

    I was looking at the Have and Have Nots tonight and had trouble with voice and mouth movement not together. I want to know is this a cable issue. I have Charter Cable or Spectrum now. This is the first time this has happen. Looking at the picture with mouth movement and voice catching up later. Reminds me of the old karate movies. What do I need to do the solve this problem. I would like to know is this a cable or programming problem. Thank You George Grooms
