For Tyler Perry, success has been something that he has had to create for himself. The culmination of all that hard work has come to fruition in the form of the brand new Tyler Perry Studios in Georgia. This new studio has no proprietary backers or corporate partners, making this the very first fully owned Black studio lot.
At over 300 acres, Tyler Perry Studios could fit the lots of Disney, Warner Bros., Paramount, Fox, and Sony inside its walls and still have 60 acres left over! On Saturday, Tyler and his team hosted an official launch party with the biggest names in Black entertainment ranging from Jay-Z and Beyonce to Will & Jada Pinkett-Smith.
