Perry

Principal

Perry reigns as one of the industry’s most prolific producers, shooting numerous series at his mammoth Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, including “Bruh,” “Sistas” and “House of Payne.” He’s developing “Mabel,” a new Showtime series that tells the origin of Madea, the sassy grandma character he’s famously played in a dozen movies and numerous stage productions. Lately, he’s been getting almost as much attention for his philanthropic efforts via his nonprofit The Perry Foundation, which earned him both the TV Academy’s Governors Award in 2020 and the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the 2021 Oscars. His giving is not restricted to the downtrodden: In 2021, it was revealed that he provided a Beverly Hills home and security for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle when they moved to the U.S.
