The Tyler Perry universe at BET is expanding even further as the network announces the premiere dates for two upcoming shows. One show is the revival of Tyler Perry’s House of Payne and the other is a new series, Tyler Perry’s Assisted Living.
Both shows will premiere on Wednesday, September 2. House of Payne premieres at 9 p.m. and Assisted Living will air at 10 p.m.
Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, returning for its seventh season, is a hilarious comedy about retired fire chief Curtis Payne (LaVan Davis) and his lovely wife Ella (Cassi Davis Patton) that picks up five years later, as they continue to navigate the problems of life with their quirky modern-day family. Aside from Davis and Davis Patton, the series also sees the return of Lance Gross as Calvin Payne, Demetria McKinney as Janine Payne, China Anne McClain as Jazmine Payne, Keshia Knight Pulliam as Miranda and Allen Payne as CJ Payne.
Tyler Perry’s Assisted Living chronicles Jeremy (Na’im Lynn), a patriarch of a young family with teenage children, loses his job and decides to move to the backwoods of Georgia to help his crazy grandfather. Grandpa Vinny (J. Anthony Brown) has foolishly purchased a terribly run-down home for the elderly and he is in way over his head, but comedy ensues as Mr. Brown (David Mann) and Cora (Tamela Mann) show up at the right time as needy investors. The series also stars Courtney Nichole as Leah, Tayler Buck as Sandra and Alex Henderson as Phillip.
Both series are are executive produced, written, and directed by Tyler Perry. Michelle Sneed serves as Executive Producer of both series for Tyler Perry Studios.
