House of Payne (also known as Tyler Perry's House of Payne) is an American comedy-drama television series created and produced by Tyler Perry which revolves around a multi-generational family living under one roof in Atlanta, Georgia led by patriarch Curtis Payne and his wife Ella.

The series premiered in the USA in syndication on 21 June, 2006 and moved to TBS from 2007 to 2012. There are 264 half-hour episodes in seven seasons.

House of Payne originally premiered in South Africa on SABC1 on Monday 28 April 2008, at 19h00. Only the first season aired on SABC1. The series later aired on StarSat's (formerly TopTV) Fox Entertainment channel and on When Fox Entertainment became FOX in 2013 and joined the DStv bouquet as well, it began simulcasting in HD on DStv only.

See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 6 has not yet aired in South Africa.


House of Payne is a comedy series about a multigenerational, working class family who experiences all of life's struggles with faith, love and most importantly humour.

Pops, the uncle and head of the household, has his life and home turned upside down when an unexpected event forces his nephew, CJ, played by Allen Payne, and CJ's kids to move into the house, putting three generations under one roof.

This chaotic living situation takes its toll on cranky Pops, who is reluctant to have his routine disturbed.

In addition to CJ's family, Pops and Ella's son, Calvin, a wise-cracking college kid with no money, hangs out at home which makes it impossible for Pops to have any peace and quiet.

It soon becomes evident just how wide the generation gap is, as the family tries to find a way to co-exist through all of life's hilarious ups and downs.

Putting the family back in family comedy, Tyler Perry's House of Payne tackles real life issues.


Note: Fox Entertainment became FOX in 2013 and began simulcasting on DStv and TopTV (as Fox Entertainment it was on the TopTV platform only). When it became FOX, it began simulcasting in HD on the DStv platform only. TopTV became StarSat in December 2013.
