TYLER PERRY TO HOST SPECIAL PROFILING HIS LATEST MOVIE
Released by TBS
As anticipation builds for Tyler Perry's newest film, I Can Do Bad All By Myself, set to be released by Lionsgate on Sept. 11, the enormously successful writer/actor/director invites fans to tune in to TBS for a one-hour special entitled THE TYLER PERRY SHOW. The uplifting hour includes revealing conversations with several of the movie's stars, including recent Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Imagen Award-nominee Adam Rodriguez (CSI: Miami), Grammy-winning recording artist Gladys Knight and Grammy-winning gospel singer and pastor Marvin Winans. In addition, Knight and Winans perform songs from the film's soundtrack.
THE TYLER PERRY SHOW is set to premiere on TBS Wednesday, Sept. 9, at 11 p.m. (ET/PT), immediately following the premiere of two new episodes of Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns.
The special, taped at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta before a studio audience, features Perry interviewing Henson, Rodriguez, Knight and Winans about their roles in the film, their lives and their careers. Henson is Skyped in from China, where she talks about working on the movie Kung Fu Kid; Rodriguez talks about his plans on CSI: Miami; Knight discusses her strong faith; and Winans and Perry talk about Madea's creative interpretation of the Bible. In addition, Knight gives a soulful performance of Need to Be from the movie's soundtrack, and Winans gets the audience members on their feet with a passionate rendition of the song Just Don't Wanna Know.
