Tyler Perry’s “Too Close To Home” Press Lunch
Remember when we told you about Tyler Perry Studios’ “Too Close to Home” series coming to TLC?
Well on Tuesday a press luncheon was held at Atlanta’s W Midtown to preview the series lauded for being TLC’s first-ever scripted series.
Much to the surprise writers in attendance, creator/director/writer Tyler Perry made a surprise appearance…
and answered questions alongside his cast consisting 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.
Written, directed and produced by Tyler Perry, “Too Close to Home” is an 8-episode drama that tells the story a young woman who escaped her working class upbringing to discover unparalleled success in the fast-paced D.C. political circuit.
The show debuts Monday, August 22 at 9PM ET/PT for a two-hour premiere.
