Variety reports that TBS has commissioned Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns, which scored almost $42 million theatrically earlier this year, as a 10-episode half-hour television series. The show will be taped in Atlanta, where Perry's other show, House of Payne, currently tapes.
David Mann will reprise his role of Leroy Brown from the movie. No word, yet, on whether other cast members from the Browns -- such as Angela Bassett, Rick Fox, or Perry, himself -- will appear in the series.
Meet the Browns will debut on TBS in January.
