A New Chapter For Tyler Perry

The Revs discuss Tyler Perry's new studio, and his enduring legacy on popular and African American culture.

On their final episode of All Rev’d Up’s premier season, Irene and Emmett talk about Tyler Perry, the multi-talented actor, producer, writer and director, and his new production and studio complex in Atlanta. The new Tyler Perry Studios opened, to much fanfare, on the site of a former US military complex and is now the largest film studio in the country.  It has established Perry as the first African-American to outright own a major film and production studio in the United States.
