According to Deadline, Perry is set to write, direct, and executive produce two shows for Oprah’s OWN network, a comedy and a drama, to air in mid-2013.

The comedy, Love Thy Neighbor, takes place in a diner where “the menu serves up good food, great laughs, valuable life lessons, and a whole lot of love for its zany neighbors,” while the drama, The Haves and the Have Nots, tells the story of an upper class family, and the poverty-stricken family of their housekeeper.

Both shows are set to air on OWN, which up until now has really only offered reality and talk shows. This will be Tyler’s first time creating a drama series, as his previous shows for TBS have all been sitcom comedies.
