The network will become the new home for all of Perry's television series and projects, the first of which will be two new scripted shows to premiere next year.
The star and producer of the popular Madea plays and films said it's a "dream realized" to have an opportunity to partner with Oprah.
"She has accomplished so much with the network and I'm excited to work with her to be a part of its continued growth," Perry said.
Perry is behind the tremendous success of three TBS sitcoms, Tyler Perry's House of Payne, Meet the Browns and For Better or Worse. His first television series, House of Payne, made history as cable's biggest comedy debut ever and it continued to garner top ratings until Perry's second series, Meet the Browns, premiered with high ratings as well.
