Let’s give this man a round of applause!

Tyler Perry, a director, and filmmaker celebrated his 30th year in the entertainment industry in 2022, making 2022 a significant year for him!

The “Madea” creator shared a series of photographs on Instagram to show followers how his production facility has changed over the years, moving from an Atlanta building to a 330-acre historic site that is surrounded by 200 acres of green space.

“This year I celebrate 30 years in show business. Remember… wherever you start doesn’t have to be where you end…. Never despise small beginnings. It takes a while to build a dream,” Perry said.


Despite starting from scratch to build his million-dollar business, the 53-year-old entrepreneur still welcomes new directors and artists to assist him with his endeavors.

Perry’s studio production and development president, Michelle Sneed, disclosed her boss’s desire to take “a step back and letting ‘fresh, exciting talent’ take the writing and directing reins” in a 2020 interview with Variety.

Sneed stated to the publication, “We’re super excited about the young, up-and-coming filmmakers and new writers that we’re working with. Tyler has solidified his place in the industry; his brand is amazing and we’ll continue to grow that.”
