New information has been released on Tyler Perry’s upcoming Nickelodeon show, Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan.
The series, starring child rapper and actor Young Dylan, will debut Feb. 29 at 8:30 p.m. ET. Perry writes, directs and produces the series, which will follow Dylan’s self-titled character as he moves into his affluent aunt and uncle’s home unannounced.
The official description states: In Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan, Dylan’s grandmother Viola (Aloma Wright) realizes that raising her grandson is too much to take on, so she decides to send him to live indefinitely with her affluent son Myles Wilson (Carl Anthony Payne II), his wife Yasmine (Mieko Hillman) and their two kids Rebecca (Celina Smith) and Charlie (Hero Hunter). Suddenly, the Wilson family household needs to adapt as lifestyles clash between rising hip-hop star Young Dylan and his straight-laced cousins. From Dylan giving Charlie, Rebecca, and her best friend Bethany (Jet Miller), lessons in “swag” and street smarts, to learning that even rappers have rules in the Wilson house, the series follows the hilarious hijinks this family faces as they try to get on the same beat.

Along with Perry, Michelle Sneed will serve as executive producer with Will Areu and Mark E. Swinton on as producers. The series is filmed at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.
Perry’s partnership with Nickelodeon is part of his major deal with ViacomCBS, which includes his work for BET and other networks within the ViacomCBS umbrella, with exclusive licensing rights. BET and Perry have also bound themselves even closer together through their joint venture, streaming service BET+.
