Tyler Perry Makes History – The 1st Black American To Own A Major Film Studio Outright
This weekend Tyler Perry made history being the 1st African American to own his own major film studio outright. Which means he doesn't own anybody anything; Tyler went from being homeless to owning one of the largest film studio's. Tyler should be inspiration for all of us to go out and chase your dreams and never give up no matter your past.
Tyler Perry made history this weekend with the grand opening of Tyler Perry Studios. Perry is the first black American to own a major film studio outright. The Atlanta film complex spans 330 acres with 12 sound stages – larger than the Burbank, California lots owned by Warner Brothers, Paramount, and Walt Disney Studios combined. “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King spoke to Perry in Atlanta about the historic moment. Tune in to “CBS This Morning” on Tuesday, October 8, for King’s full conversation with Perry.
