While visiting the Conan Show to promote his latest film “Madea’s Big Happy Family,” director Tyler Perry announced his new television project “For Better or Worse.” The show will be based on Perry’s blockbuster film “Why Did I Get Married?” and will reportedly be an hour long dramedy (comedy+drama).
The original film starred Jill Scott, Sharon Leal, Tasha Smith and Janet Jackson. None of the original cast (male or female) is expected to join the television series; however another name is already being floated around.
Actress Keesha Sharp, best known for her role as Monica on “Girlfriends, and who also had a small part in the original “Why Did I Get Married?,” is said to be on a short list of possible females to play one of the lead characters. Keesha can presently be seen co-starring in the TBS comedy “Are We There Yet,” which stars Essence Atkins and Terry Crews.
