‘Too Close to Home’: Tyler Perry Tries His Hand at a White-Trash Soap Opera
Yahoo News - 6 months
Too Close To Home: Tyler Perry’s White-Trash Soap Opera For TLC I would call Monday night’s premiere of Too Close To Home—TLC’s first scripted drama, created, written, and directed by Tyler Perry—a riot of tone and style, but that might suggest an organized chaos that the two-hour premiere lacked. The tale of a young woman caught up in a Presidential sex scandal… –no, wait: The tale of the poor inhabitants of a trailer park… well, Too Close To Home was really both of these, and so much less. The ostensible center of the show is Anna (Danielle Savre), a perennially woeful-looking gal who’s working in the social office of the White House and has convinced her fellow interns that her parents are fabulously wealthy.
