    With the success of two ultra-popular family sitcoms on TBS, writer-director-producer Tyler Perry is ready to take comedy in a new, more adult direction with Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse. This all-new comedy, based on Perry's Why Did I Get Married? movies, focuses on three couples at various stages of their relationships. The ensemble cast includes Tasha Smith (Couples Retreat), Michael Jai White (Spawn), Crystle Stewart (Miss USA 2008), Kent Faulcon (American Beauty), Kiki Haynes (Nora's Hair Salon) and Jason Olive (Melrose Place, Raising Helen). Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse is slated to premiere Friday, Nov. 25, with back-to-back episodes at 9 and 9:30 p.m. (ET/PT), only on TBS.

    Produced by Tyler Perry Studios and distributed by Debmar-Mercury, Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse follows the ups-and-downs of marriage and dating. The show centers on Angela Williams (Smith), the owner of a successful beauty salon, and her husband of 13 years, Michael (White). Michael is a former professional football player who has recently partnered with Richard Ellington (Faulcon) and Joseph Jetson (Olive) on a new sports news program called C-Sports Now.

    Michael's business relationship with Richard and Joseph is complicated, however, by the fact that Joseph is dating Keisha (Haynes), Michael's ex-girlfriend and the mother of his teenage daughter. In addition, Richard's wife, successful real estate agent Leslie (Stewart), is Angela's best friend, which sometimes makes it difficult for the couples to keep their business and private lives from mingling.
