Meanwhile, BET Networks has also announced a new Perry series titled “Assisted Living,” a comedy starring David Mann, Tamela Mann, J. Anthony Brown, Na’im Lynn, Courtney Nichole, Tayler Buck and Alex Henderson

Here’s a synopsis via Deadline:

In Tyler Perry’s Assisted Living, after losing his job, Jeremy (Na’im Lynn), a patriarch of a young family with teenage children, decides to move to the backwoods of Georgia to help his crazy grandfather. Grandpa Vinny (J. Anthony Brown) has foolishly purchased a terribly run-down home for the elderly and he is in way over his head, but comedy ensues as Mr. Brown (David Mann) and Cora (Tamela Mann) show up at the right time as needy investors.

Both “House of Payne” and “Assisted Living” are currently in production at Tyler Perry Studios and are set to premiere on BET this summer.
