Tyler Perry's OWN shows will premiere in May
The two shows from Perry are "The Haves and the Have Nots," an upstairs-downstairs drama about an affluent family and their housekeeper's family; and "Love Thy Neighbor," a comedy about the eccentric regulars at a diner. Both shows are set to premiere May 29.
The four new shows are:
"Blackboard Wars," a docu-series about charter school operator Steve Barr and principal Dr. Marvin Thompson trying to revive a troubled high school in New Orleans. It premieres in March.
"Raising Whitley," which follows actress Kym Whitley ("Animal Practice") as she raises her adopted son with the help of a group of friends she calls The Village.
"Golden Sisters," a "real-life comedy" about YouTube stars the 3 Golden Sisters, a trio of senior-citizen sisters who became online-famous after taping themselves watching Kim Kardashian's sex tape.
"Dogfellas," about former mob enforcer-turned-dog groomer and rescuer James "Head" Giuliani, his family and his Brooklyn-based business.
OWN will also air new episodes of "Oprah's Next Chapter," "Oprah's Master Class," "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" and "Iyanla: Fix My Life" in the spring.
