Tyler Perry may be following in the footsteps of Oprah Winfrey and launch his own cable channel.
The filmmaker who turns plays into movies and has two sitcoms on TBS may be forming Tyler TV. According to the NY Times, Tyler TV is in name only and is intended to be a foundation for Perry.
The proposed network will show reruns of his sitcoms, movies plus third party content.
Media mogul Oprah Winfrey launched OWN prior to her departure from daytime TV on May 25.
OWN has worked out well for Oprah.....perhaps it could do the same for Tyler Perry. We'll see.
