We all know Tyler Perry has given opportunities to entertainers struggling to find their big break.

Just recently, Tyler Perry and Nickelodeon teamed up on a new kid and family live-action series starring 10-year-old rapper, Young Dylan.

The news was revealed on The Ellen Degeneres Show where Young Dylan was set to make an appearance. Perry joined Dylan on stage to share that he’s developing a show on Nickelodeon and wanted the 10-year-old to star in it.

“It’s a thrill to bring this new series to Nickelodeon from the incredibly talented and prolific Tyler Perry, whose track record speaks for itself,” Nickelodeon President Brian Robbins said. “Dylan is an incredibly talented 10-year-old who at heart is a relatable kid making his dreams happen. We know kids are going to love watching Dylan and we can’t wait to introduce him and his new show to our audience.”

Tyler Perry has always carved out his own lane in the entertainment industry for decades. This year marked two major milestones for the media mogul. He debuted his new Tyler Perry Studios lot in Georgia and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week.

Okay Tyler Perry, we see you!
