Tyler Perry’s Love Thy Neighbor, the new situation comedy by writer and director Tyler Perry is a wonderfully fresh show about a middle class family, and their daily joys, struggles, triumphs, and fumbles. Hattie Mae Love (Patrice Lovely) lives in the simple home that she and one of her husbands bought some time ago. Linda (Kendra C. Johnson) her daughter, splits her time between Hattie’s home and the apartment she sometimes shares with her on-again off-again husband, Lionel. Danny (Andre Hall), Linda’s son, is his mother’s pride and joy. He is young, handsome, smart, and looking for a job. After graduating from college, Danny finds himself on his grandmother Hattie Mae’s sofa. Floyd (Palmer Williams, Jr.), the uncle, through his late brother’s marriage to Hattie Mae, is an ever-present thorn in the family’s side. Like old luggage, they can never seem to get rid of him.

In the first season of this comic tale, Hattie Mae has had enough of grown people living in her house. She puts her foot down and shows the toughest love there is by sending Linda and Danny to the door. Danny moves in with his friend Sam, and Linda eventually helps out down at Hattie Mae’s Love Train Diner.

The Love Train is an old locomotive car converted to a diner that serves up all of Hattie Mae’s old recipes. It is the neighborhood hang out spot that, along with great food, serves up a whole lot of fun. As Linda and Floyd commit to help Hattie Mae with the family business, blessings abound. Soon the customers multiply, and so do the laughs, the drama, and the love of a very comical family.

With the help of Danny’s new roommate Sam (Jonathan Chase), Danny soon lands a job at an internet design firm. Danny proves to be a star there. However living and working with Sam, a 30-year-old who is trapped in his teens, will prove to be more of a nightmare than Danny could ever imagine. As the parties get wilder, the women get crazier, and Danny’s young life becomes a humorous tale of dodging fanatical friends, and eccentric family members.

Nevertheless, Danny begins to excel at his new position when the Chicago office sends the beautiful Marianna to take over as boss of the Atlanta office. Marianna quickly falls in love with Danny’s work ethic and virtuous character. As a close knit team and family, the young twenty & thirty something’s embark on a number of adventures that go along with being young professionals in a contemporary & technical society.

All in all, Tyler Perry’s Love Thy Neighbor is a collection of stories that warm the heart, provoke thought, and always serves up a heap of laughs. Through all the changes, there is one constant, and that is the universal language called Love. It’s all about love.

    I've always loved Tylers plays, movies & comedy sitcoms, but Love thy neighbor & For better/ worse isn't funny. Both shows need good writers, & get rid ofthe studio audience, I barely hear laughter. Love thy neighbor needs to focus on the mom character, & find new actors, new writers to buikd her character up. I stopped watching both, I know Tyler can do better, he's so talented. Where are the writers that successfully made House of Payne, always remember quality is better than quantity, Thanks a fan!

    Sorry Tyler! I love all your TV shows except this Love Thy Neighbor crap! I only watched it so to follow the ending plot of Will being accused of scamming Linda out of $3k. But, simply put; I just can't take the characters of that ms. Hattie and those 3 young goof balls! Hattie's character is SO annoying and un-realistic in every way that she has yet to say anything that is funny!!! This character takes ignorance to the 9th degree & feeds into the perception of older southern African American women who lives in a perpetual state of anger & a negative attitude from being a single mom with NO man insight. Everything about this role from her stupid facial & hand movements to her crazy pink lipstick & knee high panty hose again just annoys the viewers to no end! Then...OMG!!! the characters of Danny, Marianna & Sam "R" waaayyyy tooo ridiculous with futile, aim less, never ending lines in hope of landing a good joke! They appear more like children in kindergarten than corporate professionals. I get the premise of all the characters, but they have missed the mark badly!!! Dr. Perry my man I think you should can this show OR better yet can the writers!!!!
