Too Close To Home With Tyler Perry

Too Close To Home!  To Close To Home Tyler Perry's first scripted series on @TLC network held a luncheon and private screening with the cast at the W Hotel in Midtown Atlanta yesterday.  A lot of the media were in for a surprise because Tyler Perry showed up and got on the panel during the Q&A so there were plenty of questions for Tyler Perry.  I asked Tyler was he a part of the casting and what did he see in each person to say that they are the one to play their part (Check out the video).

(ATLANTA) - August 10, 2016 – Yesterday, TLC hosted a press luncheon at the W Midtown to preview their first-ever scripted series, “Tyler Perry’s Too Close to Home.”
Creator/director/writer Tyler Perry made a surprise appearance at the standing-room-only event, which was also attended by cast members Danielle Savre (Bring It On: All or Nothing), Brock O’Hurn (Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween), Kelly Sullivan ("The Young and the Restless”) Ashley Love-Mills (“Nashville”), newcomer Annie Thrash and Alpha Everette Trivet (“Drop Dead Diva”). Tyler Perry Studios executives Ozzie Areu (President), Will Areu (Senior Vice President) and Mark E. Swinton (Producer) were also on hand to present the show. 

The event included lunch (with special TLC-branded cupcakes by Georgetown Cupcakes), a full episode screening, Q&A and select 1:1 interviews. Additionally, attendees walked away with show-themed pie plates as a parting gift from TLC.
