Newcomers: Tyler Perry, with Lauren Lapkus and Nicole Byer

By Headgum

Sometimes we miss things. Nicole Byer and Lauren Lapkus have been putting themselves through it, catching up on the series that, up until now, they haven't found the time for. In Season 1, Nicole and Lauren got a crash course in Star Wars. Season 2, they toiled their way through The Lord of the Rings. Now, they're on to Tyler Perry's movies, TV shows, and maybe (just maybe) his plays. Join Nicole and Lauren as they get to know the ins and outs of his iconic body of work.
