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).

    Good morning Tyler. I just have a question. Because of the economy I can't afford cable/satellite anymore. I am a die hard fan of your show the haves and the have nots. Is there anyway you can post the series on your web page for your fans like TNT use to do for your meet the browns.

    I loved the show since the beginning, but since you got good ratings the show has drag on and on and has become more and more unbelieveable , your not going with that got you there.

    I want to know the rest of the casts' names, like Landon, Quincy, and the campaign manager; I already know Shari Headley is the D.A. She was in 'Coming to America' w/Eddie Murphy.

    I want Jim to go down HARD! He's sooooo arrogant and flippant! Can't wait for Benny to wake up and point the finger @Wyatt! When Candace finds out that Wyatt ran over Benny and that Jim has been covering it up, she's going to go 51-50 (police slang for CRAZY) on both of them; Jeffrey, too, when she finds out he knew and was protecting Wyatt! Wow..Quincy isn't messing around! I like him already; he and Candace will get together, but I think the baby is dead. Candace hinted at that last season, before she found out Benny was in the hospital. I don't want Hannah involved w/that two-faced detective! As for Tony, I hope HE gets run over!! Celine is such a snake; I think she's blackmailing the Cryers b/c she and Jim have a son, and he's paying her child support, which is why she's always asking him for money! I think Katheryn knows and she hates Celine for it, but they can't get rid of her b/c she'll go to the press! Last, I wish they'd hurry up and commit Amanda to an institution; she needs to go, her storyline is not interesting.

      Finally and answer to why Celine talks to Mrs. Cryer like she does and get by with it.

    I love this show but Benny cannot wake up soon enough for me. His gentle spirit and beautiful looks make him the star of this show. For some reason he draws you into his character. I think he has incredible star potential.. His character is beautiful in every respect. I am so happy that Tyler Perry introduce us to this fantastic young man.

    Mr. Perry, I think you have done a wonderful job with this show. I am sure that you know not everyone will be a fan. The funny thing, is that some of the nasayers are still watching. I think you are an amazing writer, and pray that you are not burning the wick at both ends with all of the TV shows, plays, apperances you are making. You have given of your time, talent, money, and being, to help others to realize their dreams, and not everyone will see or appreciate that. That's ok. I say enjoy your space, keep doing what you do, and most of us will reap the benefit.
