Located on the former Delta Airlines campus of more than 30 acres, the studio consists of five soundstages, a post-production facility, a back lot, a 400-seat theater, a private screening room, and designated areas for entertaining and hosting events.

This past summer, the 46-year-old filmmaker sold his Atlanta mansion for $17.5 million, setting a record for the highest paid price ever for a private home in the Georgia capital.Per E! News Online, the French Provincial-style estate, which measures in at 34,688 square feet and sits on 17 acres, includes seven bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, two kitchens, an 18-seat theater, and a swimming pool with a waterfall. Perry bought more land outside of the city.

An $845 Million Dollar Hitmaker


The writer/director/producer powerhouse has churned out 17 films in 11 years, which have a lifetime gross of about $845 million worldwide. His personal net worth is estimated at $450 million. After striking an exclusive multi-year partnership with mentor Oprah Winfrey, Perry moved his TV empire over to OWN, where he currently runs four shows: If Loving You is WrongFor Better or Worse, The Haves and the Have Nots, and Love Thy Neighbor. Other television projects include the drama series Too Close to Home on TLC, which is Perry’s first scripted series with an all white leading cast (however, overall the cast is diverse).

Perry recently gave a shout-out to screenwriter/director and fellow OWN showrunner, Ava DuVernay, when he tweeted,“Extremely well-acted and even better directed! All hail Queen DuVernay. @AVAETC, you are amazing!! #QueenSugar.”

Coming to the big screen is Boo! A Madea Halloween, distributed by Lionsgate Entertainment with an October 21, 2016 release date. It’s the latest film in Perry’s franchise that centers around his popular matriarch character, Madea. For this comedic adventure through a haunted Halloween, she will fight off zombies, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, and ghouls, all while protecting a group of misbehaving teens.

  41. Rosie says:

    Well, this email will definitely be unconventional but here I go…

    Mr. Grand Tyler Perry,

    I have acting experience of my own breed and cultivated by my soul through my life’s encounters. I have learned to demonstrate whatever character I believe each situations calls for at the time.
    Have I studied scripts?… Well, not exactly but I study people and situations and taught myself to deliver a believable performance just to get through the moment or circumstances. As you can see I can be quite comical but in all I have an extraordinarily sense of presenting a authentic like performance because of being multifaceted.
    So what am I asking? I am simply asking for a chance for you to evaluate me and help me understand how much I can contribute a raw and real performance in the world of entertainment. I would love your constructive criticisms and your powerful suggestions. I believe you are a true and exhilarating champion in this field of television, theater and movies and you have traveled uneven pavement to get there. I, therefore, trust your critiques, knowledge and information.
    See me, hear me and teach me.
    Thank You and I hope this is a valid site that actually reaches you.

    Hello Mr.Perry,
    I am a great fan of your work on and off screen.I’m not really lookin to break in to show buisness,but I would absolutly find it an act of God to be apart of such a wonderful family.Your energy group is such a gifted manifestation of Gods Love for us all.thank you for making the concious decision to define yourself.
    P.S.If you could give Bryan this letter to give his aunt Media I’d be ever so greatful.you see my dad recently passed away and on his deathbed he told me that Media is my mother.I dont want anything from her.Its just that Ive been diagnosed with a terminal illness and I would just like to meet her so she can recognize me in heavan.my dad (Roy Dewitt)says they probably wont let her in,but I’ve been really good so God will forgive her and let her stay in the place jesus promised me.i wanted to be a lawyer too,but I ran away from the orphanage when I was 12.Dont worry god sent his angels to watch over me and i finished school and was one of the top engineers in my field in Washington D.C.Do u know what an Indigo being is?Sort of like Mr.Perry.they absorb enrgy around them and the Universe uses him as a channel for gods message to the world.
    Thanks for everything.
    Its o.k.if shes still ashamed of me
