Upstairs-downstairs drama is back in style in a big way, thanks to the success of PBS’s Downton Abbey. (Season 3 premieres tonight, by the way.)
According to TV Guide, Tyler Perry has two new original series premiering May 29 on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN, including the Downton-esque The Haves and the Have Nots, a one-hour drama which will “focus on the dynamics and secrets of the wealthy Cryer family and of the family of their maid, Hanna.” The TV show is based on the play created by Perry.
A casting call was posted back in October; the show will reportedly be filmed in Atlanta this spring. Will you watch, when it debuts in May?
