About "For Better or Worse" (Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT):

Written, directed, executive produced and created by Tyler Perry, "For Better or Worse" centers on successful salon owner Angela Williams (Tasha Smith, "Why Did I Get Married?," "Why Did I Get Married Too?," "Couples Retreat") and her husband of 13 years, former professional football player Marcus (Michael Jai White, "Why Did I Get Married?," "Why Did I Get Married Too?," "Spawn"). Marcus is partnered with Richard Ellington (Kent Faulcon, "American Beauty") and Joseph Jetson (Jason Olive, "Raising Helen") on a new sports news program called "C-Sports Now." Marcus' business relationship with Richard and Joseph is complicated, however, by the fact that Richard is married to Keisha (Kiki Haynes, "Nora's Hair Salon"), Marcus's ex-girlfriend and the mother of his teenage daughter. In addition, Joseph's ex-girlfriend, successful real estate agent Leslie Norris (Crystle Stewart, Miss USA 2008), is Angela's best friend. More often than not, the friends and couples find it impossible to keep their business and private lives from mingling. "For Better or Worse" is produced by Tyler Perry Studios.
