Producer Tyler Perry will soon have a fourth series on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network.

OWN said on Thursday that it has ordered a comedy-drama,’The Single Moms Club’, that will premiere this fall. The series is based on Perry’s film about a group of mothers who create a support group after being brought together by an incident at their children's school. The film is set to be released on March 14, 2014.

The success of Perry's series keyed a turnaround for OWN, which struggled at its start. The drama ‘The Haves and the Have Nots’ began its second season last week, and the comedy ‘Love Thy Neighbor’ began its second season on Wednesday.

OWN also airs the Perry comedy ‘For Better or Worse.’ - Sapa-AP
