Two months after news that Oprah Winfrey's Own Network had entered into a partnership with Tyler Perry to bring scripted series to the network, effectively killing Tyler's own plans to launch his own TV network, comes news that Own has officially ordered 2 comedy series from Tyler Perry, in an overall deal that will see Perry write, direct and executive produce both. The 2 new scripted series are: The Haves and the Have Nots  - a drama about the dynamics of the affluent Cyrer family and the impoverished family of their housekeeper, Hanna, and the obstacles and secrets that exist within both. And... Love Thy Neighbor -  a multicamera comedy set at Love's Diner, where every day the menu serves up good food, great laughs, valuable life lessons and a lot of love for its zany neighbors. It's not yet known exactly how many episodes of each have been ordered by Own. »
