Tyler Perry's popular sitcom "
The series, which was basic cable's #1 sitcom of 2011 and the #1 show on all of television with African-American adults, follows three couples who are at various stages of their relationships as they weather the ups-and-downs of married life and dating. The original cast is set to return in their starring roles including Tasha Smith, Michael Jai White, Crystle Stewart, Kent Faulcon, Kiki Haynes and Jason Olive. Production will begin in Atlanta in April.
Written, directed and executive produced by Tyler Perry, "For Better of Worse" centers on Angela Williams (Tasha Smith, "Why Did I Get Married Too?," "Couples Retreat"), the owner of a successful beauty salon, and her husband of 13 years, Marcus (Michael Jai White, "Why Did I Get Married Too?," "Spawn"). Marcus is a former professional football player who has recently partnered with Richard Ellington (Kent Faulcon, "American Beauty") and Joseph Jetson (Jason Olive, "Raising Helen") on a new sports news program called C-Sports Now. Marcus's business relationship with Richard and Joseph is complicated, however, by the fact that Richard is dating Keisha (Kiki Haynes, "Nora's Hair Salon"), Marcus's ex-girlfriend and the mother of his teenage daughter. In addition, Joseph's girlfriend, successful real estate agent Leslie (Crystle Stewart, Miss USA 2008), is Angela's best friend, which sometimes makes it difficult for the couples to keep their business and private lives from mingling. The series is produced by Tyler Perry Studios.
