Tyler Perry’s House of Payne will air two new episodes on TBS at 10pm on Wednesday, March 5th. Then at 11pm, cast members will be available for a live video chat on TBS.com. It’s the latest effort to promote the show by reaching beyond the TV box — last fall, the cable network aired 10, three-minute-long mobisodes on Verizon’s V Cast video service for mobile phones.
Perry’s own online efforts have been halting. After sending out a press release touting a new, online-only talk show starring the successful writer, producer and performer, only one full episode has been released on Perry’s site. I contacted technology provider Narrowstep and Perry’s publicist asking for information about new episodes, but have yet to receive a reply.
Maybe we’ll see a new episode once Perry has another television or movie project to promote.
