Last week ,the casts of both Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey’s newest lineup, “The Haves & Have Nots” and the new sitcom “Love Thy Neighbor” were presented in a vast media setting in Beverly Hills’ prestigious SLS Hotel. The new joint venture comes as a product of two entertainment masterminds joining together to produce original programming, tailored to a growing audience at the Oprah Winfrey Network.

“The Haves and Have Nots” is a dramatic scripted presentation written, directed and produced by Tyler Perry, featuring the lives of the Cryer family, who represent “The Haves.” The Cryers are not only wealthy, but appear to be rich with family secrets and schemes. As the story unfolds within the mansion walls, the family that represents the other side of the title, “The Have Nots” deals with their own web of deception. It appears that money, power and respect represent both sides of the game in this dramatic plot. Fresh off the set of “Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas,” Tika Sumpter (“Sparkle”) stars as Candace Young, the daughter of Hanna, the housekeeper of the Cryer family. A determined woman, Candace holds an inner thirst for a richer lifestyle and will do what she needs to get what she wants. “She’s not trying to be someone she’s not, she’s just trying to be someone” according to Sumpter, during an intimate press interview at the OWN properties.
