EUR was at the red carpet screening of “Too Close To Home” in Beverly Hills at the Paley Center.

When asked what moves and stimulates him, he shared, “all the people working for me in Atlanta is what keeps me motivated and leaving some sort of legacy for my son.”

And like all of Perry productions, “Too Close” has an underlying message, which is …

“No matter where you come or go, no matter how far you try to travel, no matter how far you try to get away from life it all comes back to you. You have to face everything that you’ve left behind in some kind of way. If you didn’t leave it right, if it’s not cleaned up the right way, if it wasn’t done right, some kind of way it’s going to show up in your life again and unfortunately it showed up on the president’s desk and now she’s back in Alabama.”

It goes without saying that Tyler Perry is an individual who’s created his own lane in Hollywood and has taken things to another level. On the red carpet for “Too Close,” actress Golden Brooks from TV One’s “Hollywood Divas” said of Perry:

“I have so much respect for someone who has started from grass roots and created something out of literally nothing.”

The respect for and work of Tyler Perry is being noticed all throughout Hollywood without a doubt. “Too Close to Home” is poised to deliver a drama filled season – as only Tyler Perry can – starting tonight, August 22, on TLC at 9/8c.
