Oprah Winfrey’s OWN is another step closer to becoming the Tyler Perry Network, thanks to TP’s latest series. “If Loving You Is Wrong” (written, produced and catered by Perry) premieres on OWN September 9th and will be his fourth on the network. The drama follows a middle class group of friends who look “normal” but…
Secrets, lies and deception lie behind closed doors for a group of husbands and wives that live and love on the same street.
TP has three other shows produced for OWN, “The Haves And The Have Nots,” “For Better or Worse” and “Love Thy Neighbor,” which I have never seen. #noshade #maybeso… Here’s a peek at “If Loving You Is Wrong.”
It’s upfront season and all the networks are rolling out their Fall lineups. We told you about FOX’s new Lee Daniels project, Empire, yesterday. Now, ABC is weighing in with a new comedy that’s bringing more “color” to primetime. The new show, Black-ish stars Anthony Anderson as “Andre,” a successful businessman who’s raising his family in the ‘burbs. “Andre” fears his children don’t know the struggle and are losing their connection to black culture. Tracee Ellis Ross plays his wife and Lawrence Fishburne takes the role of “Andre’s” father. Anderson, Fishburne and Larry Wilmore –who will take over The Colbert Report’s timeslot when Stephen Colbert moves onto CBS– are all executive producers. Take a look… Taste the Brew for a clip
Lee Daniels is taking the family power grab/fight for my father’s legacy themes of Dallas, Dynasty and (insert popular 80s show here) to a modern level in his new project, Empire. The soapy series just got picked up for a full season on FOX.
Empire stars Terrence Howard as a drug dealer turned record executive who finds out he’s dying and must leave his “empire” to one of his children. But, not so fast. His ex-wife, Taraji P. Henson, is fresh outta jail and she wants her piece of the profit. Thus, beginning an all-out battle to lead the company. Timbaland is doing the music and Malik Yoba and Gabourey Sidibe will make appearances in the show which premieres later this year. Taste the Brew for a clip
