The Wayan’s Brother’s Are Bringing “Marlon” To NBC
Black-ish and The Carmichael show have been consistent gunners on network TV and now Marlon Wayan’s wants parts. NBC ordered his new family sit-com to their network. The show is produced by the Wayan’s Brothers and stars Marlon Wayan’s and Essence Atkins. The cast already seems funny!
Here is how Deadline is describing the show:
Loosely inspired by the real life of star Marlon Wayans, this update to the classic family comedy centers on a loving (but immature) father committed to co-parenting his two kids with his very-together ex-wife. While his misguided fatherly advice, unstoppable larger-than-life personality and unpredictable Internet superstardom might get in the way sometimes, for Marlon family really always does come first — even if he’s the biggest kid of all.
The cast includes Marlon Wayans, Essence Atkins, Notlim Taylor, Amir O’Neil, Bresha Webb and Diallo Riddle
Christopher Moynihan serves as writer and executive producer. Marlon Wayans, Rick Alvarez, Michael Rotenberg and director Andy Ackerman (pilot) also executive produce. “Marlon” is produced by Universal Television, Wayans Brothers Entertainment, Bicycle Path Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.
