Tyler Perry’s new show on TBS, “For Better or Worse” doesn’t premiere until Nov. 25, but Atlanta’s tastemakers and industry insiders had a sneak peek at what’s coming and a chance to hear from the entire cast of the show. Tasha Smith, Michael Jai White, Kiki Haynes, Jason Olive, Crystle Stewart and Kent Faulkon were in attendance. They talked about the roles they play on the show and shared their unique experiences of getting “the call” that offered them the role.
This show is going to be a funny, but real on a lot of levels. I was glad to find that lead actor Michael Jai White’s character (Marcus) will show black men in a more thoughtful and positive role than some prior Tyler Perry comedy shows. Tasha Smith promised to display in a comedic way, what many sisters are thinking when they’re in “situations” involving their man or children.
