According to the New York Times, Tyler Perry is rumored to be getting his very own network ala Oprah!


Perry's rumored network will be called Tyler TV. The Times reports,

[A]ccording to an industry official briefed on the matter who requested anonymity because the plans are private... The partners will initially stock the channel with reruns of Mr. Perry’s sitcoms and movies, including the popular Madea series, in which he appears in drag as the title character, a gun-toting grandmother. They also plan to buy third-party content that meshes with Mr. Perry’s Christianity-tinged brand.
When pressed for more information by Times, Lionsgate and Mr. Perry declined to comment.
