Looks like Tyler Perry is taking a leaf out of his BFF Oprah’s book and is launching his “own” TV network! (Haha, get it? OWN? Like Oprah!)

Our friends over at TheYBF.com are reporting:

Media mogul Tyler Perry has announced plans to partner with Lionsgate on a new cable network to be named Tyler TV … the deets are still being ironed out but the network’s initial launch will be powered by reruns of Tyler’s sitcoms and movies as well as third-party content with a Christianity-slant.

At press time, neither party have denied or confirmed if there is any truth in the story. But for Tyler’s sake, we hope it’s true! This is pretty BIG.
