Actor/playwright Tyler Perry is hatching plans to launch his own TV network aimed at providing a more positive outlook on life.
The Diary Of A Mad Black Woman star is tired of seeing sex and violence on TV - and he's considering starting his own family values network.
Perry says, "Our children and our families are falling apart because there's only one thing to see, there's only one place you can go for information, especially African-American people, and a lot of times it's very negative.
"There are a lot of horrible things going on when you turn on the television with sex and violence and everybody has become desensitised to it.
"I want to own a television cable network that will be all positive when you turn it on in the morning, it will inspire your children if they're watching cartoons or the prime time."
