OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network has signed Tyler Perry to a multi-year deal to create new scripted TV shows for the network.  The two scripted shows are targeted for a mid-2013 premiere.  Perry will write, direct and executive produce both new shows on OWN.

That day has come,” Oprah Winfrey, CEO of OWN, said in a statement.  “We are all energized by the opportunity to collaborate with Tyler who has a proven track record for producing highly successful cable series.  He has an incredible ability to illuminate life stories and characters in his unique voice and inspires and encourages people all over the world.”

Perry has created a string of sitcom hits for TBS, including House of Payne and Meet the Browns.  TBS, will continue to broadcast repeats of his shows, including For Better or Worse.

Does this deal with OWN signal that Tyler Perry has ruled out the creation of a cable channel of his own?  Only time will tell.
