DESCRIPTION: (from OWN's press release, April 2013) Written, directed and produced by Tyler Perry, "Love Thy Neighbor" is a half-hour comedy set at The Love Train Diner a family run restaurant where every day the menu serves up good food, great laughs, valuable life lessons and a whole lot of love. Diner owner and feisty family matriarch Hattie Mae Love (Patrice Lovely, "A Madea Christmas") has her hands full not only managing her customers but her family drama, too. Her daughter Linda (Kendra C. Johnson, "Phat Girlz") splits her time between Hattie's home and the apartment she shares with her philandering husband. Linda's son Danny (Andre Hall, "Goodbye LA"), a recent college grad, moves into a bachelor pad with his best friend Sam (Jonathan Chase, "Chemistry") and lands a job at a hot internet design firm. He quickly establishes himself as a rising star... that's when he's not distracted by Sam's hard-partying ways and their beautiful co-workers Marianna (Zulay Henao, "The Fighter") and Drew (Darmirra Brunson, "Sunset Junction"). Meanwhile, Uncle Floyd (Palmer Williams, "House of Payne") is an ever-present thorn in the Love family's side. Like old luggage, they can never seem to get rid of him. "Love Thy Neighbor" is produced for OWN by Tyler Perry Studios. It is created, written, directed and executive produced by Tyler Perry.
