Tyler Perry is bringing another television series to TBS, making it number three!
Perry has signed his latest deal with the Turner-owned network for “For Better or Worse,” a dramedy series based on his successful “Why Did I Get Married?” movie franchise.
Michael Jai White and Tasha Smith are confirmed to reprise their roles as the much loved and famously dysfunctional married couple Marcus and Angela. Many lovers of the movie 'Why Did I Get Married' one and two often feel that the couple stole the show each time and thus deserved to give fans more.
'For Better or Worse' will air initially with 10 episodes. If ratings show mass approval, the network will order 90 more.
The series like Perry's others, will be syndicated by Debmar Mercury and will begin production this summer. At the same time, Perry will be wrapping production on 'House of Payne' after a staggering 222 episodes.
“Even though it will be sad to say goodbye to ‘House of Payne,’ I’m really looking forward to exploring new territory with ‘For Better or Worse,’” said Perry. “Working on ‘House of Payne’ taught me a lot about what it takes to make a successful television series and I’m looking forward to applying that experience to ‘For Better or Worse.’”
