Tyler Perry's Own Cable Channel? "TYLER TV" Network On The Way...

Media mogul Tyler Perry has announced plans to partner with Lionsgate on a new cable network to be named Tyler TV. Get the deets inside.......

 

Tyler Perry is taking his next career cue from Oprah Winfrey and launching his own cable network. The super-producer is partnering up with Lionsgate movie studio on a new venture called Tyler TV.  

According to the NY Times, the deets are still being ironed out but the network's initial launch will be powered by reruns of Tyler's sitcoms and movies as well as third-party content with a Christianity-slant.

So far, neither Lionsgate nor Tyler have spoken publicly about their plans.  Now this is a BIG f'in deal.  Congrats to Tyler!

What is taking blk ppl so

What is taking blk ppl so long to CRUCIFY Chris Brown for calling black ppl apes...with the same relentless hate that you would give rihanna, A keys for doing the same? Not motivated?....want to let it slide? You only enjoy tearing down blk females? This is why it is open season on blk women. You enable evil black males to publicly disrespect you. AN attack on dark females is an attack on ALL black women! Stop letting evil black rappers/singers act like modern day slave masters putting you against each other like field vs house negroes. BOYCOTT CB FOR LIFE!!! The black community did nothing when Chris Brown made insulting jokes about dark skin people on twitter which is viewed by the world. So...... CB took it to another level by calling a couple of dark skin artists APES on twitter. This is the typical scenario of what keeps the black community down. The black community does not put black males in check . If CB was bashed when he had made the dark skin jokes on twitter, he would have never taken the step to attack dark skin people again. DO NOT BUY THE MUSIC OF RAPPERS/SINGERS THAT DO NOT SUPPORT YOU. USE THE MONEY TO BUY THE MUSIC OF BLACK FEMALE ARTISTS LIKE ALICIA KEYS, MARSHA AMBROSIUS, JAZMINE SULLIVAN, LEDESI, ESPERANZA SPALDING ETC.. The people that control the media do not want black women seen on TV in a positive light, and the black male rappers/singers are a part of this plot. This is why you hardly ever see black women looking classy in videos in 2011.. when that used to be normal back in the 80's. There is video footage of rappers/singers including CB, Fabolous, Trey S. saying that they have COMPLETE CONTROL over which women are picked to be in the videos and how they are presented. So they choose NOT to use black women, and on the rare occasion they use a TOKEN black female.... they make sure that she is on the sideline looking trashy and have the white,latina,brazilian females playing the LEADING LADY looking classy. All latinas, brazilians do NOT consider themselves black regardless of their ancestry. It's not for diversity not for diversity because... why don't they include latino,white, brazilian MEN??? BOYCOTT ALL PEPSI PRODUCTS LIKE AQUAFINA, MOUNTAIN DEW ETC. FOR THE RACIST SUPERBOWL PEPSI MAX COMMERCIAL. Look how they portrayed the dark black female as angry, jealous at a time you hardly see dark females in commercials. THINK. Lauryn Hill just started doing some promo shows and blogs are already portraying her in a negative light. Why don't they report how she thanked her fans, great performances etc. They don't want dark, natural conscious female artists to win. If you think she acts crazy... then why do you support Kanye West, 50, lil wayne, etc when they act crazy? CB was on twitter making jokes about dark skin ppl and dark skin girls. were saying he was only kidding. BE HONEST... if Rihanna or any light skin FEMALE artist made jokes on twitter about dark skin ppl for the world to see you would have bashed her for life. This is why black women do not get any respect from media,rappers etc. You NEVER hold black men accountable for anything. BOYCOTT CB, SLIM THUG,OCHO CINCO, FABOLOUS FOR LIFE. Look how black ppl are telling blk girls to forgive CB....CONDITIONING them to be future domestic violence victims. Do you think J LO, Paris Hilton, KIM KARDASHIAN PARENTS prepared them to accept/forgive abuse? CB is rich. Why don't you teach these blk girls to get their money/education and to NOT have premarital sex which can lead to pregnancy, hiv, AIDS etc. The media,rappers will continue to bash black women as long as you allow it. BOYCOTT EVERYTHING, USE YOUR MONEY TO SUPPORT BLACK FEMALE ARTISTS, BLACK FEMALE BIZ, ETC. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BLACK MALE RAPPERS/SINGERS GAVE AWAY BLACK MUSIC CULTURE ON A SILVER PLATTER. THEY DESTROYED ONE OF THE VISIBLE FORMS OF MEDIA THAT BLACK PPL HAD ...MUSIC. In the 90's, 80's black ppl/WOMEN played a major role in music entertainment...videos setting trends etc. In the 90's we had a several black female groups like en vogue, tlc, brownstone, escape,swv,jade. ...as well as black female singers,rappers, reggae artists. Black people could have dominated the music scene had we remained united. No one could have complained that blk male rappers/singers only have black women looking classy in videos. All other races/ethnicities do the same thing. Look at other networks.. white, indian,korean, latin men use the same women in their race for their videos,movies etc. Once THEY realized that selfish black rappers/singers were willing to destroy black women....the MEDIA ran with it. Do you realize the days of black female artists/groups are practically gone FOREVER. No, it's not due to internet downloading. The face of black male rappers/singers have remained the same. They made sure NOT to include any other men. BOYCOTT THEM ALL. EITHER THEY RESTORE BLACK MUSIC CULTURE WITH BLACK WOMEN ...OR DESTROY IT ALL. TELL THEM TO REMOVE THEIR BLACK FACES AND REPLACE IT WITH WHITE, LATIN, INDIAN MEN!!!!!! I don't care what race of women blk men date or marry. The issue is the EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES that they took away from blk women. The black music culture that was built on the blood, sweat,and tears of blk ppl should not used by blk male artists to make money for themselves and invite OTHER WOMEN to PROFIT. reply BOYCOTT THEM ALL!! Look at all the ppl that are getting mad because I am trying to get black females to open their eyes. You have to remember that every race, cnn fox news ,KKK,ETC comes to blk blogs to stalk blk ppl and get info. DO NOT FALL FOR THE TOKEN DARK/BLK FEMALE ANYMORE! Puffy/Diddy started the latina trend when he started dating J LO IN THE LATE 90'S. Don't believe me....I challenge you to go back and find a latina playing the LEADING LADY in any video B4 diddy put J LO in his Been around the world video around 1997. I tried to get black women to protest back then because I new that other black male artists would start ding the same. Do you realize that if black women had given J LO a fraction of the HATE that you give Rihanna, nicki,and other blk female artists you could have STOPPED the latina, brazilian trend. Again..all latinas/brazilians do NOT consider themselves black regardless of their DNA. I am soooo angry at all the blk women who grew up in the 90's,80's and allowed this to happen! You know darn well that you did not grow up seeing OTHER women in almost every hip hop RandB video. They are attacking the new generation. You have young black girls who have hardly seen any black females looking positive in these videos for their ENTIRE life. They want to keep black women down. That's why every other day their is some random post about how insecure blk women are. It's 2011 and black women you have LOST a lot. Black women had more positive images in the media in the 90's,80's. It's only going to get worse until you BOYCOTT EVERYTHING! Go natural, make your own clothes if you have to. Stop giving the world your money. SUPPORT BLK WOMEN INSTEAD. Diddy's conscious must have bothered him. Yes, dirty money are black .. but look at the LEADING LADY in the videos. They will use a TOKEN black female to keep you quiet. Don't fall for it. IF CB tries to have blk girls in his videos now because his team stays on these posts.... still BOYCOTT HIM, it's too late. LET me see them use black females for the next 10 YEARS LIKE THEY HAVE USED NON BLK WOMEN FOR THE LAST 10. Things should have remained the way they were in the 90's. BOYCOTT 106 and park on BET!!!There should not be any black girls sitting in the audience laughing when BET DOES NOT WANT A BLACK FEMALE TO HOST THE NUMBER 1 SHOW ON A BLACK NETWORK. Rosci said that she is NOT black. BOYCOTT Check your local latin,indian, korean networks. They do NOT EMPLOY BLACK WOMEN. BOYCOTT!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Send latinas back to their RACIST latin networks!Boycott 's picture

Congrats to Tyler Perry!

Congrats to Tyler Perry! Tyler is a good businessman but he's not a good filmmaker. I think it's a wise choice for Tyler & Lionsgate to mix his films & Tv shows with christianity content because you need strength from God to sit through a Tyler Perry film/tv show without throwing a chair or something at the TV!

To everyone complaining about

To everyone complaining about Tyler and his work, if you are so concerned about what airs on television and how it make black's look, then I suggest: 1) Go to film school (especially Furious since she never fails to post her dislike for TP and his work) and make your own quality films; 2) Protest. Get off the blogs, quit running your mouths, and write the networks regarding what you want to see, and last, but not least, 3) When good, quality programming comes out, WATCH IT. The same people complaining are probably the ones that sit and watch that stupid azz nonsense called reality shows. It never ceases to amaze me how they keep cranking them out one after the other with a load of comments like, "I'm going to watch" filling up the blogs. Black people, if you are concerned about programming, stop supporting stupid ish. Tyler has a market. He caters to that market. If you aren't one of them, don't watch. I'm sure he won't be hurt. Tyler is the least of our issues, people. When the supply and demand for good programming is backed up by black viewers, we might start seeing a change. P.S. I love Tyler, and I will continue to support him and his work. Do I like all his work? No, but I'm happy for the brother.

I like Tyler Perry and his

I like Tyler Perry and his plays, films, t.v shows etc.. Although it seems somewhere along the line he lost his concept, don't get me wrong he employs many talented black actors/actresses something white hollywood does not do. But every last one of his movies it seems are riddled with abuse.. For example his last movie (which they hyped so much) For Coloured Girls ALL the characters were abused in one way or another, like there's no rainbow at the end? If he would only show us in a different light. Yes we can have our cake and eat it too! Stay Fab and congrats Tyler.

Hopefully he'll be hiring

Hopefully he'll be hiring OTHER talented black producers and directors to create programming, because his stuff stinks! I think 50% of the people who watch his films watch ONLY because there aren't enough black films coming out as of late. People sit and dog his work out like crazy. I'm sure that's why his show didn't do well. He's all about quantity...I heard he tapes 3 episodes in a day....and then what...then he has enough material to send his stuff straight to DVD. He's all about PROFIT not great work.
Anonymous's picture

I agree with you. He's all

I agree with you. He's all about quantity not quality. I would respect him more if he didn't take himself too seriously but brother man gets really upset when his films don't do as well as he expects. If he's churning out 2 movies a year and at the sametime churning out 3 episodes per day for a Tv show, how the hell can he deliver a quality film? Established filmmakers take an average of 1 to 2 years to make one film. Plus, they are not churning out 3 TV episodes a day either. So when this movies don't do as well as he expects, he shouldn't complain because he didn't care enough to spend time working on them and audience didn't care enough to spend time watching them!

They should name it the Soap

They should name it the Soap Network. Oh, that's taken. I'm glad for his success but I think he should try to improve his craft. He has an audience that will stomach whatever he puts out. Why not try to get better at film making? You're never too big to get help from people who know what they're doing. He's constantly beating people over the head with his "messages"...why not let the audience digest the messages on their own? Just my 2 cents.

The problem with Tyler Perry

The problem with Tyler Perry is an issue of QUALITY. Say what you want about Spike....Spike is making something that is artful, intelligent … He is far from a perfect filmmaker, but he is attempting art. What is Tyler Perry good at? Marketing? Is he good at cinematography? No. Screenwriting? No. Set building and designing? No. Dialogue? No. Working with actors and getting the most from them? No. Not only am I struggling to figure out what Tyler Perry is good at as a filmmaker; I think that he is purposely and willfully ignorant of what it means and takes to be a good filmmaker. It’s just not of interest to him. He works quickly. He doesn’t really have any concern for back story or details. If he were making chairs, they would fall apart. Tyler Perry is just a TOOL for companies like Lionsgate to market to Black audiences. Black Audiences need to demand better quality and more diverse stories. Tyler Perry is not the best by any means. Blacks need to use their economic power to DEMAND better and I'm not just talking about movies........
FURIOUS STYLES's picture

There is no specific standard

There is no specific standard on how to be a black filmmaker or screenwriter. There are several diverse black filmmakers out in Hollywood and everyone does not have to be like Spike Lee to be considered a great filmaker or screenwriter. Tyler Perry is talented at doing the type of plays, movies, sitcoms that he is known for. As a result, by staying true to his particular craft, he has become very successful and showed Hollywood that he has the support and backing of his community to support him. So chill with all the "he is a TOOL" and "what is he really good at" nonsense. If YOU are not a big fan of his work thats cool but don't try to clown him and act as if he is destroying our community with his style of entertainment because HE IS NOT. Congrats to Tyler Perry for all his success.
