The Haves and the Have Nots Filming Locations

Tyler Perry, the author and founder of the always-popular Madea franchise, could be called a lot of things. Talented. Versatile. Hilarious. The list could go on and on. But one thing that distinguishes Mr. Perry from so many other successful actors is that many of his eventual movies or television shows were formerly theatre performances, written by Tyler himself. The Madea films, Meet the Browns, and Why Did I Get Married, are all examples of Tyler Perry’s film or television productions that began as original plays written by Tyler Perry.

In 2013, Oprah Winfrey approached Tyler Perry about adapting his 2012 play, The Haves and the Have Nots, into the first-ever scripted television series for the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). Perry agreed, and the show debuted in May of 2013 in the immediate #1 ratings spot in the history of Oprah’s network. Officially documented as a soap opera, The Haves and the Have Nots is easily the Oprah Winfrey Network’s most successful venture to date. Every new episode either replaces or rivals a previously held all-time ranking spot for OWN. We would expect nothing less that remarkable success when such titans as Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry decide to work cohesively.

The Haves and the Have Nots is very firmly set in an antebellum setting that depicts what most people think about when they think of southern aristocratic culture of towns like Savannah, GA. The atmosphere of the show is specifically detailed, people might not guess that a large portion of the filming actually takes place in the Metro Atlanta area, including Douglas County, GA. Among other scenes, The Haves and the Have Nots Filming Locations include the Old Douglas County Jail, located at 6840 Church Street in Douglasville, GA, 30134. The Old Jail has been the site of many television and film productions, especially since the building and property were salvaged by local officials, a move that was heavily supported by the great residents of Douglas County. So come enjoy a day-trip, vacation, or even a longer stay in the county that has a little bit of everything to offer, Douglas County!
