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).

    Mr. P, after reading the three posts to the right in black/w white writing, I need to ask if you do read and if you do care about what people are feeling, especially those who are not AA. I think not.

    Tyler please it's time up for Veronica having sooo much power over not only poor David but everyone else, she and Candice are a bit much they actually could have been mother and daughter duo.I've watched from the beginning, not just this but all of your shows and plays,but it's so unrealistic and quite frankly boring for these two. It was so very nice to see when Catherine knocked Candice out cold, I'm sure most got excited to see that.I strongly think that a man should never ever strike a woman but Jeffrey or David someone please slap any and all the taste out of Veronicas' mouth she is so disrespectful enough is enough Tyler!!! Please.

    I can't understand why on tonight's show July 6, did Mr. Perry had Candis act so gedo towards her mother when in prior episodes they became more like mother and daughter.

      He did have love from his wife but he pushed her around and pushed her away. He needs to beg her for forgiveness. I hope they make it.
