Marlon Wayans and team have been hard at work as they have wrapped new series Marlon with NBC. As reported the series is inspired by Wayans actual life as a father, and his family life. Today it was announced that the project will premiere with two new episodes on August 16th at 9 to 10PM.
Loosely inspired by the real life of star Marlon Wayans (“In Living Color,” “Scary Movie”), this update to the classic family comedy centers on a loving (but inappropriate) 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, Bresha Webb, Diallo Riddle, Notlim Taylor and Amir O’Neil.
