Perry

Film Director

This was a big year for Perry. The showbiz titan bid adieu to Madea after 10 movies by taking the smack talker on a U.S. stage tour. He announced Peachtree & Vine Productions with longtime “Madea” producer and former Lionsgate exec Tim Palen, a multi-year Viacom partnership starting with two BET shows — White House drama “The Oval” and comedy “Sistas”  — and content for the upcoming BET Plus. But the year’s capper was the grand opening of Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta. The 330-acre production hub is built on a former Confederate Army base and has more space than Disney, Warner and Paramount lots combined. And that significance wasn’t lost on Hollywood, as a who’s who of trailblazers flew in to celebrate Perry’s mega-endeavor.
