From the producers of Love & Marriage: Huntsville comes an unscripted show about five accomplished businesswomen in Jackson, Mississippi, including one of the state’s few Black women doctors and the owner of a hair-care emporium. These inspiring ladies represent Mississippi’s best Black female entrepreneurs, determined to shatter glass ceilings and defy long-held prejudices about the South.
To redevelop a dying mid-twentieth-century historic district that was previously recognised as a magnet for Black-owned businesses, they must put their differences aside.
The Haves and the Have Nots
CAST: Tika Sumpter , John Schneider & Crystal Fox
This soap opera was produced by Tyler Perry and is based on his play of the same name. It takes place in Savannah, Georgia, and follows three families: the wealthy and powerful Cryer and Harrington families (the titular Haves), as well as the poor Young family (the have nots). Hanna Young is Katheryn Cryer’s best friend and counsellor, as well as a maid for the Cryer household. The Cryer family is the enviable face of wealth and prosperity in Savannah, Georgia. From the outside, it appears to be that way. However, unrest and parallel lives within the Cryers’ magnificent home threaten to wreck their privileged existence.
