Writer, director, producer and entrepreneur Tyler Perry is working on “The Oval”, which is a new BET Networks drama set in the White House and focusing on a fictional first family.
Filming is set to film this summer at Tyler Perry Studios in Georgia. The show’s cast includes Ed Quinn, Kron Moore, Paige Hurd and Daniel Croix Henderson.
“I’ve been hard at work on The Oval and can’t wait to share this story with audiences,” Perry said in a press release. “I’ve set out to create a show that tells the story of a family placed in the White House by people of power while also highlighting the personal side and everyday lives of the staff who run the inner workings of the nation’s most iconic residence.”
Tyler Perry, 49, wrote the series and will also be directing and producing the project. His many credits include the Madea franchise as well as the OWN series, “The Haves and the Have Nots”.
