Meet The New Family In The Oval Office – Tyler Perry’s The Oval


– Everybody has a story. Everybody comes from somewhere. I think that’s a lot of what our show is trying to discover and unpack. – The Oval is a drama that will send you on so many twists and turns. There’s a lot of love, and
there’s a lot of turmoil. And it’s just juicy, it’s juicy stuff, so you’ll want to tune in. – The family dynamics on this
show are pretty volatile. There’s a lot of toxicity in the water. And where they’re going
to end up, I don’t know. Maybe they’ll live happily ever after, and maybe they’re going
to end up at the morgue. – The Oval is about generational trauma. I think it’s a piece that explores how trauma passes through generations and is sustained until
someone is ready to heal it. – Outside of the presidential
aspect of it, it’s about what you go through behind closed doors and how you have to put
a smile on your face. – People are normally
surprised to find out is how crazy things get in
this show because (laughs) for the first episode,
things just take a big turn. They take a big turn, and
nobody sees it coming. – It really is about not
politics necessarily. It’s just about the inner
works, inner thoughts, inner lives of the people
that we just see their facade. – There’s a lot to do with
power and relationships. Being in a position where
people can pull strings and manipulate situations. Again, as a people,
we’re trying to survive and navigate through their world. – Working with Tyler
Perry has been such a joy. It’s been a blessing beyond belief. People don’t believe me when I tell them what an amazing person he is. – Tyler’s a different kind of man in terms of his standard
and his expectations. You see his heart in so many instances, which has nothing to do
with what we’re doing. – Tyler likes to find raw talent and give them a huge opportunity. And somehow, he always
identifies great people too. – Working with Tyler Perry is really fun. I’m shocked and surprised, and
I’m not afraid to say that. – He knows what he wants. I feel like he’s entrusted
us to deliver that, and he doesn’t put a
lot of pressure on you other than keeping the train moving. – The way he works with
such speed and specificity keeps you as an actor so
open and true and present because you never know
what’s gonna change. – If I get in a race, he’s a rabbit, and you gotta be like a cheetah. You gotta be faster than him. You have to work ahead of him. So therefore, by the time he gets to you, you’re already ready to go. – People should tune in
to watch The Oval because we have put in so much
work, we are so excited. The cast is amazing, the
crew has been awesome. And Tyler really, really
put a lot of work into it, and it’s just gonna be really good. There’s a lot of drama. Who doesn’t like drama? I know I do.
