Two months ago, Oprah Winfrey revealed plans to work with Tyler Perry on two original scripted programs for OWN, a first for the network.

Today, OWN released further details on Perry’s contribution to the network via The Hollywood Reporter:

“Haves and the Have Nots is a single-camera effort about the dynamics of the affluent Cyrer family and the impoverished family of their housekeeper, Hanna, and the obstacles and secrets that exist within both families.

Love Thy Neighbor, meanwhile, is a multicamera series set at Love’s Diner, where every day the menu serves up good food, great laughs, valuable life lessons and a lot of love for its zany neighbors.”

The “Haves and the Have Nots” will continue Perry’s theme of the rich vs. the poor (seen prominently in “The Family That Preys”) while “Love Thy Neighbor” sounds like a fresh and perhaps exciting concept.

Perry will write, direct and executive produce both shows, which begin production early next year.

Will you tune in, Clutchettes?

    OPRAH! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    If Oprah doesn’t hire me to produce a comedy show .. sorry people that OWN network will fail :(. If anyone knows Oprah tell her to contact me to give that network some life. Her network is geared towards people turning the damn channel. There are plenty of black writers, directors, filmmakers and etc she could give a chance. I wish I had the opportunity, to give her ideas about, getting the cobweb’s out of her nelson rating. Also, she needs put Issa Rae on that network AND LET HER KEEP HER RAWNESS. Oprah needs to realize she needs to get out that Lily white box she’s trying to paint. She better throw more chocolate on that bitch. And have more edgy type shows.
