It is an inspire story. Now a brand-new series called Taylor pyler Perry's "Too close to home" and Chris Connelly Ta talks about it. Reporter: Special place within Tyler Perry's Los Angeles residence, a tribute to decades of african-american pioneers in entertainment. This room just represents all of the people who have literally paved the way so I could be in this position and it's my homage to them. Reporter: It remains a billion dollar phenomenon writing, directing and acting in plays, movies and TV series all under his name. You look like a big bottle of pepto-bismol. I'm sitting here in the middle of this success while at the same time I have my hand and my feet still holding on to everything that I've had in the past. Reporter: His newest Tyler Perry's "Too close to home," an eight-parter spanning Washington, D.C. And a trailer park in the deep south. Attempted ha ed assassination of the president of the united States. I love the idea of just how fun and exciting it could be to have someone have this great life in the white house, living their dream and then have it all fall apart because of selfish greedy whatever reasons and find themselves back at home. Reporter: The besieged Bonnie played by soap and Broadway siren Kelly -- She's strong. If Bonnie was a friend of mine I would not mess with her -- Me either. Reporter: That social media superstar Brock o'hern who saw this man bun video. How to make a bun in 15 seconds or less. Reporter: Catapult him to 2.1 million views. I played jack in "Jack and the bean stalk." The show will feature his first screen kiss ever. It was a lot of fun to be honest. How far do you have to go back to get somebody's first stage kiss. My first stage kiss I think I was 17 so -- and it certainly was not anywhere as good as the kiss that I had with Brock. I've only been made on stage. It's never going to happen. Never going to happen. Madea will return in "boo:a made Halloween" while he admits fatherhood has changed his priorities. It changes so much of what I dream about. Business, where is the next Dealy now it's about him. Reporter: For "Good morning America," Chris Connelly, ABC news, Los Angeles. Thanks to Chris for that.
