Tyler Perry may be following in Oprah Winfrey’s footsteps by getting his own cable network. Perry who turns his plays, television shows and films into movies may be forming Tyler TV. According to the NY Times, Tyler TV, which is still a working title, is intended as a home base for the prolific Mr. Perry — just as Ms. Winfrey, one of Mr. Perry’s most ardent supporters, now operates OWN.
Details are still sketchy, but the new network will initially house reruns of Tyler’s sitcoms and movies, plus third-party content “that meshes with Mr. Perry’s Christianity-tinged brand.”
I don’t know about this Tyler, look how OWN turned out for Oprah!
