Tyler Perry has two new shows coming to BET this fall. Yes, TWO.

The “man formerly known as Madea” signed a new mega-million dollar venture with Viacom in July 2017, and his first show from the deal, The Oval, a presidential drama will premiere this week.

The show is a Scandal-type show, where the President and the First Lady are an interracial couple. The show focuses not only on the United States’ most prominent family, but also the dedicated staffers and crew working behind the scenes. Sort of like Downtown Abbey.


Perry is also working on another show called Sistas - which is expected to be similar to the 2000s hit series, Girlfriends.

Last night, Tyler had a premiere party for both shows, and tons of Atlanta celebs came out to celebrate.


Congrats to the very prolific Tyler Perry who continues to motivate and elevate!
