TBS Orders New Series From Tyler Perry, Ends 'Payne'; MeTV Network Presents Not-So-Royal Weddings

More Tyler Perry comedy is coming to TBS, but this time not a multi-camera family comedy. TBS has ordered 10 episodes of the new series Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse from Tyler Perry Studios. The dramedy, based on Perry's hit Why Did I Get Married? films, marks the third Tyler Perry series to come to TBS, which is also home to Tyler Perry's House of Payne and Meet the Browns. As with House of Payne and Meet the Browns, syndication will be sold by Debmar Mercury.
Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse follows the ups-and-downs of married life for Marcus and Angela, two characters who originated in the feature films Why Did I Get Married and Why Did I Get Married Too? Michael Jai White (The Dark Knight) and Tasha Smith (Couples Retreat) are set to reprise the roles of television anchor Marcus and salon owner Angela. Additional cast members will be announced at a later date.
For Better or Worse marks a new direction for Tyler Perry's television properties. Unlike his family-oriented sitcoms, For Better or Worse will target young adults. Production on the series is slated to begin this summer at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta. As of now, it will be a half-hour/single-camera production. Stay tuned for a premiere date as soon as we know, but it looks like it will premiere in fourth quarter.
Meanwhile, Tyler Perry's House of Payne will end its run after seven seasons on the air later this year. Meet the Browns will continue to air as that started only in 2009, but has over 100 episodes already. House of Payne will be nearing 200 episodes.

For viewers looking for more wedding fun after Will & Kate say their 'I do's,' MeTV Network is the place to be to watch more walks down the aisle! After Prince William and Kate tie the knot, tune in to the MeTV Network for a slew of hilariously "Not-So-Royal Weddings," this Sunday (May 1) starting at 11:00am ET. You'll see the weddings of Betty Jo (Petticoat Junction), Ted & Georgette (The Mary Tyler Moore Show), Latka & Simka (Taxi), Joanie & Chachi (Happy Days), Carla (Cheers), Steve & Barbara (My Three Sons), Hot Lips (M*A*S*H) and of course Mike & Carol (The Brady Bunch).
The wedding fun starts at 11am and ends at 4pm ET on Sunday.
