Tyler Perry Announces “House Of Payne” Revival On BET
Media mogul Tyler Perry won't let any detractors stand in his way as his empire continues to expand. His most recent work "A Fall From Grace" on Netflix was watched by an estimated 26 million people and he's planning to continue to build on that success by reviving one of his most popular TV series.
According to Deadline, Perry confirmed that he will be reviving his sitcom "House Of Payne" with its original cast and he also announced that he will be debuting a new comedy series called "Assisted Living" with David and Tamela Mann, J. Anthony Brown and others. Both series will debut on BET this summer.
Perry has hinted that he would revive "House Of Payne" for some time now. The original series ran for 254 episodes on TBS from 2006 to 2012. The revival series picks up 5 years later as retired fire chief Curtis Payne (LaVan Davis) and his lovely wife Ella (Cassi Davis Patton) continue to navigate the problems of life with their quirky modern-day family.
"Tyler Perry's Assisted Living" series:
After losing his job, Jeremy (Na’im Lynn), a patriarch of a young family with teenage children, 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. - via Deadline
