TBS orders new Tyler Perry series 'For Better or Worse'

April 26, 2011 | 12:13 pm

Tyler TBS is getting deeper into the Tyler Perry business.

The cable network has ordered a new series by Perry, "Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse," a dramedy based on his "Why Did I Get Married?" films. The series will mark the third series the writer-director has developed for TBS, which airs his "Meet the Browns" and "House of Payne" comedies.

"For Better or Worse" will focus on the roller-coaster relationship of married couple Marcus (Michael Jai White) and Angela (Tasha Smith), two characters from the movies. Perry said while his previous series were family-oriented, the new show would target young adults.

"House of Payne," which debuted in 2006, is about to wrap production.
