Perry has his own film studio and has created shows such as &#39;Meet The Browns&#39; and &#39;House of Payne&#39; as well as the &#39;Madea&#39; film franchise. In April, TBS announced it had canceled &#39;House of Payne&#39; but that it will air a third series by Perry, &#39;For Better or Worse,&#39; which is based on his &#39;Why Did I Get Married&#39; comedy movies.  In August 2011, the New York Times reported that Perry was involved in negotiations to receive his own cable channel called &#39;Tyler TV.&#39; As of September 2011, nothing has been finalized.  &#40;Pictured: Tyler Perry talks to OnTheRedCarpet.com at the premiere of &#39;Madea&#39;s Big Happy Family&#39; in April 2011.&#41;</p></span></div>
