TBS has ordered 10 episodes of the new series “Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse,” a dramedy based on Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married?” movies.

This is the third Tyler Perry series to be featured on TBS, after “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” and “Meet the Browns.”

“Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse” focuses on the ups-and-downs of marital life for Marcus and Angela, two characters from the feature films “Why Did I Get Married?” and “Why Did I Get Married Too?”

Michael Jai White and Tasha Smith are set to reprise the roles of TV anchor Marcus and salon owner Angela, with additional cast members to be announced, according to a news release.

In a new direction from his family-oriented sitcoms, “For Better or Worse” will target young adults.

The show’s production is scheduled to begin this summer at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.
