The big homie Tyler Perry has announced he is not making anymore films but plans on focusing all of his energies on The OWN Network. He is leaving all that good money that he has made with Lionsgate to focus on his new love for television and OWN. Sounds like a boss move to me.
Check out the details below.
Tyler Perry’s latest movie The Single Moms Club his 17th film in 10 years and it’s the last film that he has to do with Lionsgate. Tyler is now focused on making original television programing for Oprah Winfrey’s Network.
Tyler has a multiyear partnership to produce, write, and direct scripted content for OWN. He reportedly is the only producer to have scripted series’ on the network in addition to an equity stake in the company. Boss move for sure. As you know Perry already have the following series on OWN, The Haves and the Have Nots, For Better or Worse, and Love Thy Neighbor, are scoring strong ratings on OWN. The Have and the Have Nots has generated the network’s highest ratings.
We can’t wait to see what Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey have up their sleeves. Tyler wrote an email back in March sharing his thoughts and excitement about his new career move,
“This is the first time in 10 years that I don’t already have my next movie written or shot and ready to come out. That is because my focus for this past year has been on my TV shows on OWN. Just so you know, that’s where you’ll find me until I do another movie.”
