    Busy entertainment mogul Tyler Perry is producing a drama about a woman involved in a political sex scandal, the first scripted series that will air on the TLC network.

    TLC said Wednesday that the eight-episode series, tentatively titled "Too Close to Home," will air this summer. The lead character is a successful woman from Washington forced to return to her modest beginnings after her affair with a married senator becomes public.

    Perry's successful series on OWN, including "Love Thy Neighbor" and "For Better or Worse," helped turn around the Oprah Winfrey network. Now TLC, at a tough ratings time for cable TV, hopes he can work the same magic.
