OWN’s The Haves and Have Nots (HAHN), If Loving You Is Wrong and TLC’s Too Close To Home are set to end their runs by 2019-20, with the departure of creator/EP Tyler Perry to Viacom in a multi-year deal.
“OWN has an exclusive overall television production deal with Tyler Perry that runs through May of 2019 with series airing on the network through 2020. At the end of the exclusive relationship, OWN and Tyler Perry have the option to work together on a non-exclusive basis. OWN has had great success in the scripted space with Tyler Perry and with its new original dramas Queen Sugar and Greenleaf. The network will continue to aggressively expand its roster of premium original scripted series.”
