Tyler Perry


Tyler Perry faces critics concerning his new show Sistas that is currently on air.

Sistas is an American television comedy-drama series created, written and executive produced by Tyler Perry that first aired on October 23, 2019 on BET

With Perry stating that he is the sole writer of all his series that are currently on air.

Popular comedian Lil Rel Howery voiced his opinion on the issue:

“I love Tyler Perry and I’m proud of him, but I told myself I’m a say something because I don’t agree with that. I don’t understand,” he said, noting, “You can’t write a show called Sistas and you’re not a sista. So you don’t want no suggestions or nothing?”

“I know we talk a good game about ‘This is what I’m doing, I’m doing this, I’m doing that.’ Once again, I’m talking, but I’m putting my money where my mouth is,” he added. “I don’t have what he got yet, but as I climb up here, I’m a do even more of that. We gotta do better man. It’s all talk, but if you’re really on that, then give people jobs, bro. You can’t base nothing on one writers’ room, brother. That means you didn’t hire good writers. Find more writers! That’s just real.”

But the cast from Sistas are out against this as they dish out defence for him.

“I think it’s really important to remember that Tyler Perry puts Black women at the forefront in so many ways. “Sistas” comes from women in his life,” said costar Ebony Obsidian. “He may have sat there and written a script but it’s coming from Black women. So Black women’s fingerprints are all over this script.”

Baker also added, “He said at our premiere that he actually gave some of the women on his staff producer credits because he listened to them. He sat down and talked to them for a couple of hours and he was like, ‘I’m going to write this.”

Tyler Perry is known for his numerous movies portraying the stories of black women, their relationships and faith, examples like ‘ Diary of a mad black woman’, and the Madea collections

The lifelong dream of American actress Racquel Bailey to star in a Tyler Perry project, has finally come true.

The actress got a lot of attention, including from Perry, earlier this year when she took out a billboard announcing her as the his “next leading lady”.

According to TMZ, Bailey has actually landed a role in Perry’s new TV project, “Sistas”, in which she will appear as a police officer who had a relationship with one of the show’s leads.

Back in June, Perry, 49, shared a photo of the billboard on Instagram, but advised people to save their money and audition instead, to stand a chance to star in any of his projects.

Perry pointed out that this “is the third time that someone has done this,” telling actors, “This is not the way to get my attention if you’re looking for a role in one of my shows.”

“Again, the best way to work for me is to AUDITION and it’s FREE! We post breakdowns all the time for actors. JUST COME AND AUDITION,” he wrote.

Bailey is expected to appear in the first season finale, and possible in Season 2.
