Oprah Winfrey revealed that production was already underway when she tweeted a shot of her and Tyler shooting one of his two new shows.
Tyler signed on with OWN to create original programming for the network. Shortly after announcing the deal, Tyler revealed that his first two shows would be “The Have and Have Nots” and “Love Thy Neighbor.”
“The Have and Have Nots” is billed as being a drama about families from two different sides of the socioeconomic scale, while “Love Thy Neighbor” is a sitcom.
Oprah also shared a picture of her and one of Tyler’s actors, Tika Sumpter. “New Star in the making @iamtikasumpter All New Tyler Perry shows coming to @OWNTV in May.” It’s not clear which of these series Tika will be starring in, so viewers will just have to wait and see.
