TBS Adds "Browns" in January, "My Boys" in March
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- TBS is ramping up its first quarter slate with newcomer "Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns" and the return of "My Boys."

"Browns," based on the film and play of the same name, will premiere Wednesday, January 7 at 10:00/9:00c while "My Boys" will kick off its third season in March (exact date TBA).

Here's how the network details said entries:

MEET THE BROWNS: "After bringing his unique style to TBS with the enormously popular sitcom Tyler Perry's HOUSE OF PAYNE, Tyler Perry is preparing to add to his successful track record with a spin-off based on characters of his popular play and hit movie, MEET THE BROWNS. The series stars David Mann as the fun-loving but sometimes crass �Downtown� Leroy Brown, who also appeared in several episodes of HOUSE OF PAYNE on TBS. This series opens with Leroy Brown trying to fulfill his father's dying wish by opening a retirement home. Helping him out are his daughter, Cora (Tamela Mann � Diary of a Mad Black Woman); his nephew Will (Lamman Rucker � Why Did I Get Married?), a doctor; Will's wife, Sasha (Denise Boutte � Days of Our Lives), a nurse; Carmen Martinez (Jeanette Sousa � Supernatural), a beautiful young social worker; and Jesus Hernandez (Antonio Jaramillo � CSI: Miami), a maintenance engineer studying to be a lawyer. Tyler Perry's MEET THE BROWNS comes to TBS from Debmar-Mercury. As he does for his other series, Perry is once again serving as executive producer and director, as well as occasionally writing."

MY BOYS: "This critically acclaimed comedy stars Jordana Spiro as PJ Franklin, a 20-something sports writer looking for love while also trying to maintain her close connection with her friends, most of whom are guys. Co-starring with Spiro is the show's top-notch ensemble cast, including Jim Gaffigan, Kyle Howard, Reid Scott, Michael Bunin, Jamie Kaler and Kellee Stewart. MY BOYS premiered on TBS in November 2006, ranking as ad-supported cable's #1 original sitcom of the year. This year, the show averaged 1.5 million viewers, up 14% when compared to last summer. MY BOYS comes to TBS from creator Betsy Thomas."

The pair will join "10 Items or Less" (Tuesdays at 11:00/10:00c starting January 6) as well as Wednesday mainstay "Tyler Perry's House of Payne."
