In this sitcom, a cranky Atlanta firefighter has to contend with disruption in his life when some of his extended family moves in to his house. They're a wacky bunch, and they're turning the man's life upside down. If it weren't for his wife, the guy's whole life might fall apart. The series is one of Tyler Perry's many, many TV and film projects, and it aired from 2006 to 2012. Like most of Perry's stories, this one is set in Atlanta. The series follows the Payne family, which is led by patriarch Curtis Payne and his wife Ella. The series uses Perry's usual mix of low-brow physical comedy and basic gags with doses of seriousness and dramatic issues. The series originally aired on the TBS cable network from 2007 to 2012. Its eight seasons on that network were followed by a move to the BET cable network years later. The revived series began airing in 2020 on that network. In between, a spin off series called The Paynes and featuring the original cast aired on the Oprah Winfrey Network. Altogether, the series has been one of the longest-running regular series featuring a predominantly black cast.
