What do you think? Are you a fan of Tyler Perry’s work? Will you watch Too Close to Home?
BRING BACK TOO CLOSE TO HOME IT WAS A GREAT TV SHOW & GREAT LOOKING CAST TOO!! TYLER BRING IT BACK WE LOVED IT !!!!
This was one of the best TV shows depicting life in poverty stricken Alabama-areas we all know exist. Although real life is often quite mundane for the poor, it is an eye opening story of the harm drugs and poverty can play in our society. I was hoping for a season 3, 4, 5 ect…and am very sad it was not continued. Please try Netflix or another medium for airing and continue making this and your other wonderful shows for your many fans Mr. Perry!
