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

OWN said Thursday that it has ordered a Perry drama, "Single Moms Club," that will premiere this fall. It's about a group of mothers who create a support group after being brought together by an incident at their children's school.

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 Wednesday.

OWN also airs the Perry comedy "For Better or Worse."
