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).

    Hi Tyler, I love everything that you write but this is not about the Have and Have Nots, it is about If Loving You is Wrong. Please don't let that baby be blace because Brad is already hurt and it will be awfull for the children, how are they going to explain it to the children. I was excited about Have and Have Nots and I am just as excicted about If Loving You is Wrong. You sure have made OWN interested to watch.

    Tyler, great season opener. I was sorry to see Amanda go because she brought the cray - cray to the show. Would it not be a twist to really find out that it was murder and that the teacher did it. (the guy who raped her) I also would love to see Jeffery become a love interest of Candice, she might can change him. Loved the look on David's face when he came out of the burning house. Great Job.

    TYLER: WHAT'S HAPPEN ON TWITTER (IT'S A GAME RIGHT) WHY DO THEY HAVE A PICTURE OF TERRELL OWENS TALKING ABOUT LOOK A DAVID'S FACE AFTER VERONICA WANTS HIM NO MORE. THAT PICTURE IS NOT DAVID HARRINGTON OR PETER PARROS. IT'S A PICTURE OF TERRELL OWENS OF THE NFL.

    Veronica is a beast! I couldn't stand her in season one and now she is my favorite. I also download the app and am having a blast. Keep it up!

      Beast is one way to describe Veronica, and I don't mean that in a kind way! She's a spiteful, vindictive, poor-excuse-for-a-mother witch if I ever saw one! I believe Veronica was once g** herself, and perhaps was shamed because of it; that's why she insists that Jeffrey go 'straight' and is pushing Melissa on him to have continual sex until he 'likes it'. She's sick! David is bound to leave her! Benny/Veronica is not going to last long...Hannah will see to that; I guess Candace's new 'friend' will make an honest woman out of her; I think he's somehow going to be an influential person, more so than Jim, but who actually LIKES her! I hope she gets her son back and Q goes back to prison to stay (he might take Veronica with him when he tells it was she who got him out to begin with), one more reason for Candace to hate Veronica! I want Hannah to be with Michael, NOT the two-faced detective! And we haven't seen the last of CELINE...Jim and Catherine's problems are just beginning b/c she won't be easy to get rid of; will Wyatt change his mind about wanting to 'do the right thing' now that he's been schooled about prison? Jeffrey, get over him and s**** with Landon, who really DOES care about you!

    Mr. Perry, I'm a devoted fan of your show, "The Haves and the Have Nots." However, I've had to recently terminate my cable TV service, due to the ever-increasing rates and the demand for a cable box on every TV with its related costs. Instead, I've bought ROKU streaming sticks and have installed the advanced, high-tech antennas. So I excitedly prepared to view the June 30 premier, but was crushed to find, even with all the hundreds and hundreds of channels and networks included on ROKU, the OWN network wasn't there. Why is that? Can I get a copy of the premier episode? Is there any way I can watch the episodes on my computer? I'm very, very disappointed, as I've followed the show from the start. Thank you.

    I wish that it was possible to have e your wonderful shows on regular TV. I am not fortunate to be able to afford cLeaning or satellite and therefore I just have to listen to friends tAlk about how good the shows are. Just not in my budget at the time . But keep up the great and wonderful work you do! You are an awesome actor, producer and writer.

    I think this is one of the best written, smartest shows on television. Every actor is absolutely perfect in their roles. It is also very nice to see Philip Boyd in the cast. Keep up the awesome work!
