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.’ ”
