Tyler Perry And Oprah Winfrey Partner Up With A Major Announcement
Well it seems like Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry are taking their relationship to the next level by partnering up together on a business venture that should be lucrative for all partied involved.
Tyler Perry, the prolific television producer behind sitcoms like “House of Payne,” will soon start to produce shows exclusively for OWN, Oprah Winfrey’s cable network. The exclusive deal was announced on Monday and this could really do wonders to revitalize the OWN brand.The network, which has struggled to define itself and draw an audience since its founding 22 months ago, said in a news release that it planned to premiere two new scripted series made by Mr. Perry sometime in mid-2013. Going forward, OWN will be Mr. Perry’s “singular destination for all new television series and projects,” the network said. Mr. Perry’s current home on cable, TBS, will continue to broadcast repeats of his shows “House of Payne,” “Meet the Browns” and “For Better or Worse.” But he will only produce new shows for OWN. While the amount of the deal was not disclosed, you can believe that the price could possibly buy a couple of islands. The word is that OWN will probably give Tyler two nights to make the magic happen and since he has already brought major traffic to TBS with House of Payne, Meet the browns and For Better or Worse, I am sure Tyler Perry can do it again. Congratulations to the two dons and may we see more of what Tyler is capable of bringing to the forefront.
