Angela & Marcus Are Back

Wow- now that was fast. After posting earlier this morning that Tyler Perry was looking to bring his “Why Did I Get Married?” spinoff “For Better or Worse” to television, Shadow & Act are now officially announcing its pick up by TBS.

The network has reportedly ordered ten episodes and contrary to previous reports, two of the movie’s original characters will indeed be joining the cast. Both Tasha Smith and Michael Jai White have signed on to reprise their roles of Tasha and Marcus, the most hilarious couple in the group.

The show has no official release date; however it is expected to air on the same night as Tyler’s other two comedies “Meet the Browns” and “House of Payne.” In a statement, Mr. Perry said: “Working on ‘House of Payne’ taught me a lot about what it takes to make a successful television series and I’m looking forward to applying that experience to ‘For Better or Worse.’ ”

  1. Good luck to Tyler Perry! I can’t wait to check out the show. So good to see people of Color doing great things for other people of color.

  2. won’t watch it. The one female that was the loud, ghetto, unreasonable, stereotypical,angry, dysfunctional, childish, etc, etc; he brings into the small screen. Hey, as long as he’s bringing back Tasha, why don’t he bring back Mamie from Gone With The Wind. I mean, she was apart of the black experience in the world. As much as I want to see black women on t.v. , I rather see none if that means black women are only relogated to play their “posistion”.

  3. @BOHWE – That is all true. Although I think, either way we can’t win… Black shows aren’t what they use to be at all any more. =/

  4. YUCK!!!

    MICHAEL DON’T DO IT, YOUR BETTER THAN THAT YOU OWE TYLER NOTHING.
    IM SICK OF TASHA GHETTO ANGRY BLACK WOMAN ROUTINE.

    tyler perry you need to go to HELL.

  5. I will watch it. Marcus and Angela are so funny. I don’t think MJW is a great actor but Tasha is very good. It should be interesting. I’m sad they cancelled House of Payne though. Atleast I still have Meet the Browns

  6. Yaaaayyy. Hopefully they’ll get the same rating or better as The Game.
