ATLANTA, Ga. – This past week Tyler Perry opened the doors to his new 330-acre movie studio with a gala celebration. Perry tells CBS that the project that he is “most excited about” is the inclusion of this compound.
The compound will be the next phase for Tyler Perry’s legacy and another opportunity for the mogul to give back to his community.
“Pulling this next phase off is building a compound for trafficked women, girls, homeless women, LGBTQ youth who are put out and displaced and having a compound that is a beautiful place right here,” said Perry in an interview with CBS’ Gayle King.
He goes on to say that somewhere on this 330 acres training in the business will be provided as way for them to become self sufficient; they will live in nice apartments, and daycare will also be provided for those who need it. These are the wonderful things that Tyler Perry “hope to do soon.”
