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 believe Saline has a son with Jim and that's why she wanted that check so badly. Also, if you remember Catherine can't fire her because of some deal they have. Not to mention, each time saline said something about Wyat the Cryers got defensive. Examples. 1: (talking to Catherine) I don't know what id do if my son acted this way. Example 2: (talking to Jim) I've always though of Wyat as a son. "Wyat is not your son saline,"said Jim. Example 3: (talking to Jim) it was very heroic of you to protect you son like that; only if you did the same for all your children.

      Yes, I'm sure they do have a son together, and Katheryn hates Celine for it, b/c she's always subtly rubbing it in that they can't fire her! Maybe the junkie Jim is forcing to do something, is his and Celine's son. Jim has more enemies than he can count; if Celine ever decided to spill the beans about all SHE knows about that family, they'd be run out of town! Now Hannah has the goods on them, too, thanks to their junkie son! Yet Jim prances around town so arrogant, like most rich folks do when they think they're above the law; those are the kind you want to see go down in FLAMES, begging and crying!

    OMG! This was sooooooooo good! My girl's gonna get Jim in the ghetto and let the brothers 'handle' him! Yes!!! Well, 'Ronica got her eyes full @the end of the show, didn't she: David coming out of Maggie's room, and Jeffrey coming out of Landon's! I LOVE IT! Jeffrey is a fool not to get w/him; he's cute and he's sensible! Sooner or later they WILL be together! *I know there are those who don't approve of the g** lifestyle, but the fact of the matter is, it's out there, and they ARE human beings like the rest of us; get over it! So glad Warlock has Candy's back. Next week Hannah will find out what a fraud Det. Byron is! I truly can't wait 'til next week! With Quincy in the mix now, it's really gonna get interesting!

      It's not about getting over it. It's about GOd and the things that God represents. I just thought Tyler P, was all about being a Christian not pushing this homosexuality down viewers throats justifying it. It's wrong. I guess all that Christian stuff was just a gimmick.. I get it now.

    I am sick of the show trying to promote homosexuality. It's almost like TP is trying to convince and push this issue out there. Either Tyler Perry is promoting Christianity or what???? On one end he's speaking in tongues at TD jakes church but yet so passionate About homosexuality. I am confused

      Live and let live ?????I guess you don't read your bible. You cannot be saved and be a homosexual. Please repent Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. I Corinthians 6:9(NIV) - Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.

      This show is awesome, one of the best I've seen. The plots are incredible. But I have to agree with TT, if Tyler is a Christian why is he promoting homosexuality. This is wrong both in the sight of God and man. When viewers who are on the verge watch this show, this is there confirmation that it is right. I must tell you all it is nasty and it is wrong, wrong, wrong. I would act the same way Veronica does. Besides that I enjoy watching it except when the h*** part comes on I cringe!!! Also I am not sorry for Candice she is too malicious, she is an awful little girl, she got exactly what she deserves. This is what happens when you interfere into a married relationship whether it is a good one or not that's besides the point.

      The Bible condemns a lot of things that good 'church-going' flks do on a regular basis. If you look further in that scripture in Leviticus, you'll notice that trimming your beards and eating seafood are prohibited too. So you better throw away your razors and cancel that fish fry. Let God be the judge b/c you ain't in a position to judge no one!

      I commend Mr. Perry for being brave and honest enough to present the issue of homosexuality as a reality for black men, and for showing how and why so many of them end up on the 'down low'. All you people with your judgments and bible thumping are boring and offensive to the rest of us who don't share your religious beliefs. Give it a rest! If you're going to quote the bible then look in the mirror and consider just how perfectly you yourself have lived up to its standards. Don't be surprised to find that you can't. And if you insist that you do then you're a hypocrite and a liar. Instead of judging other people you should be worrying about how God will judge YOU.

      Maybe Tyler Perry is pushing acceptance. Isn't it okay to love the sinner, not the sin? That is if loving another person is a sin. Homosexuality is not mentioned on the 10 commandments, nor did I recall JESUS CHRIST listing it as one of the greater commandments, HE did say however to LOVED GOD AND OTHERS. HE did not say UNLESS they're homosexual. As always , thank you Tyler for sharing the true interpersonal dynamics that negatively effect the children of GOD who find true love with a same sex partner.

      TP was molested by male relatives as a child. He is at least bisexual himself and it widely rumored that is TD Jakes is gay(bisexual). The conflict for Tyler is that he has a religious background so he struggles with these two opposing side of himself. You cannot be at Tyler's level in Hollywood without being at least bisexual. Not gonna happen for no one...no exceptions.

      I think TT is ignorant and judgmental. Any idiot that lives in the world today knows that homosexuality is real and Tyler is not promoting homosexuality he is touching on the issues that we live with in the world today. I wish people would shut up and just be happy that we have something on TV other than a reality show full of BS and drama.

      Hey TT, Have you ever heard the words (entertainment only). Tyler's only sin is he knows how to make that money and laughing at you all the way to the BANK! Don't judge your life or others leave that stuff for the man above and you live your life the way you see fit. Oh by the way stop watching we have enough interested viewers to keep the show airing each Tuesday night. The show is technically for grown up not Kids.

      I do not think TP is promoting homosexuality. They are all over the place, even in our churches. It is life and TP is trying to show us so much about the have and the have nots. Don't for get the name of the show. It can cover any number of subjects. So far I enjoy it all. The actors are acting out their characters very well. They are given script to read and memorize and I understand that TP will stop a scene if it is not like he wants it to be. Keep up the great work all.

      okay Mr.Holy and sanctamonial, or should I say Mr.Perfect, it seems quite frankly you know the scriptures perfectly well as I do and don't get me wrong I'm not going against the scriptures, but since you're blatantly and disrespectfully advising all these persons to repent of their distasteful sins, my friend they should all advise the same for yourself.......... I meant are you for real, you know it amazes me how hypocrites like you seems to quote so many scriptures about the sins you see being committed by others and what's going to happen to them if the don't change or repent , and you find absolutely none to suite the ones you're doing....... Gosh!!!! For your FYI... for I can also "Quote" It is the same Holy Book which said the Lord came to save the sinners not to condemn.

I hope that it's full of sitting-on-the-edge-of-your-sit, with bated breath and intensity. I hope Candace returns before the end of the season. You are doing a great job, Mr. Perry. Peace...MJ

    Yes, our girl Candace is alive and she DOESN'T have amnesia, either; she's gonna get her revenge on Jim big-time! You're going to see a more aggressive and outspoken Benny; he won't be Hannah's 'baby'. As soon as Candace finds out he's alive and has a chance to fill him in on what's going on, Benny's gonna get some revenge of his own on Wyatt for running him down like a dog! Can't wait for bro and sis to work together on this! The Cryers are going DOWN! Amanda...shoot yourself and put yourself out of your own misery! This is ridiculous! Jeffrey and Landon will be together and 'Ronica won't be able to do anything about it! She better watch it before she ends up w/out a husband!
