The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) is pleased to announce that Cassi Davis and LaVan Davis are returning to prime time as Ella and Curtis Payne in Tyler Perry‘s new series, “The Paynes.” The show premieres on Tuesday, January 16 with two back-to-back episodes beginning at 10:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.

As Curtis and Ella are enjoying their retirement, a death in the family takes them on the road to Florida, where Curtis is roped into a real estate deal that will tumble their lives like clothes in a dryer – with plenty of laughs and life lessons along the way. “The Paynes” also stars Emmy-winner Jackeé Harry as well as Stephanie Charles, Markice Moore, JD McCrary, Sanai Victoria and Anthony O. Dalton.
