Film's Stars Taraji P. Henson, Adam Rodriguez, Gladys Knight and Pastor Marvin Winans Join Perry for One-Hour Special

THE TYLER PERRY SHOW to Air Wednesday, Sept. 9, at 11 p.m. (ET/PT), Immediately Following Two New Episodes of Tyler Perry's MEET THE BROWNS

As anticipation builds for Tyler Perry's newest film, I Can Do Bad All By Myself, set to be released by Lionsgate on Sept. 11, the enormously successful writer/actor/director invites fans to tune in to TBS for a one-hour special entitled THE TYLER PERRY SHOW. The uplifting hour includes revealing conversations with several of the movie's stars, including recent Oscar� nominee Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Imagen Award-nominee Adam Rodriguez (CSI: Miami), Grammy�-winning recording artist Gladys Knight and Grammy-winning gospel singer and pastor Marvin Winans. In addition, Knight and Winans perform songs from the film's soundtrack. THE TYLER PERRY SHOW is set to premiere on TBS Wednesday, Sept. 9, at 11 p.m. (ET/PT), immediately following the premiere of two new episodes of Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns.

The special, taped at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta before a studio audience, features Perry interviewing Henson, Rodriguez, Knight and Winans about their roles in the film, their lives and their careers. Henson is Skyped in from China, where she talks about working on the movie Kung Fu Kid; Rodriguez talks about his plans on CSI: Miami; Knight discusses her strong faith; and Winans and Perry talk about Madea's creative interpretation of the Bible. In addition, Knight gives a soulful performance of �Need to Be� from the movie's soundtrack, and Winans gets the audience members on their feet with a passionate rendition of the song �Just Don't Wanna Know.�

Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All By Myself, a Reuben Cannon/Lionsgate Production from Tyler Perry Studios, is an uplifting drama infused with music and Perry's trademark mixture of laughter and heart. In addition to Perry, Henson, Knight and Winans, the film stars Adam Rodriguez, Brian White, Hope Olaid� Wilson, Kwesi Boakye and Freddy Siglar. It features musical performances by Knight, Winans and Mary J. Blige, who sings an original song penned by chart-topping R&B writer/performer/producer Ne-Yo.

In I Can Do Bad All By Myself, Madea (Perry), America's favorite pistol-packing grandma, catches 16-year-old Jennifer and her two younger brothers looting her home. She decides to take matters into her own hands and delivers the young delinquents to the only relative they have, their Aunt April (Henson). A heavy-drinking nightclub singer who lives off her married boyfriend, Randy (White), April wants nothing to do with the kids. But her attitude begins to change when Sandino (Rodriguez), a handsome Mexican immigrant looking for work, moves into April's basement room. Making amends for his troubled past, Sandino challenges April to open her heart. And April soon realizes she must make the biggest choice of her life: between her old ways with Randy and the new possibilities of family, faith and even true love.

Since making his film debut in 2005 with Lionsgate's Diary of a Mad Black Woman, Tyler Perry has become a multimedia phenomenon with a roster of hugely successful film, stage, television and book projects. Five of Perry's seven films have debuted at #1 at the North American box office, including his most recent movie, Madea Goes to Jail, which was based on his most popular play. Perry began his career as a playwright with I Know I've Been Changed in 1992. Six years and many failed productions later, the play became a success after what was to have been its final performance ever. Perry's 10 produced plays to date have grossed tens of millions of dollars and have set box office records in major venues across the country, including the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles and the Beacon Theater in New York. Perry's first book, Don't Make a Black Woman Take Off Her Earrings: Madea's Uninhibited Commentaries on Life and Love, debuted at #1 on The New York Times hardcover nonfiction bestseller list the week of April 30, 2006, and was named both Book of the Year and Humor Book of the Year at the October 2006 Quill Book Awards. In addition to I Can Do Bad All by Myself, Perry has been working on Why Did I Get Married Too. In 2008, Perry unveiled Tyler Perry Studios, a 200,000-square-foot studio situated on the former Delta Air Lines campus in Atlanta, where his films and television shows are filmed.
