Tyler Perry hosted an exclusive press luncheon at The W Hotel Midtown in Atlanta, Georgia for a new television series he’s bringing to TLC. Tyler was accompanied by the entire cast of the show. Media professionals got the first look at the premiere episode followed by an informative Q&A panel with the cast and producers of the show. Too Close To Home brings a southern, drama filled twist to the political city of Washington, D.C. when a southern girl from Alabama lands herself in hot water for an alleged White House affair with the president. The first episode held nothing back from steamy sex scenes, to intense confrontation, to unexpected turns. This series seems no different from the other Tyler Perry productions in the sense that it will keep you on the edge of your seat and desiring more! Don’t miss TLC’s first-ever scripted series, Tyler Perry’s Too Close to Home premiering on August 22, 2016 at 9PM EST.

Written, directed and produced by Tyler Perry, Too Close to Home is an 8-episode drama that tells the story of a young woman who escaped her working class upbringing to discover unparalleled success in the fast-paced D.C. political circuit. Check out a first look here
