Like we told you back in April, the Oprah Winfrey Network is preparing for a total Tyler Perry takeover. Perry is debuting two new original scripted series on the network: The Have and the Have Nots and Love Thy Neighbor. And now we have the first looks for both.
About The Have and the Have Nots:
Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots is a new television drama from the prolific writer, director and producer Tyler Perry. The show follows the complicated dynamic between the rich and powerful Cryer family and the hired help who work in their opulent Savannah, Georgia, mansion.
The soap opera-ish series stars Tika Sumpter, John Schneider, Crystal Fox and Aaron O-Connell. Take a look:
About Love Thy Neighbor:
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…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.
The sitcom stars Patrice Lovely as Hattie Mae Love, Kendra C. Johnson and Palmer Williams Jr.
