NBC Announces Series Order For Marlon Wayans and Essence Atkins’ New Comedy ‘Marlon’

Marlon - Season Pilot

NBC has given the series order for the Marlon Wayans and Essence Atkins show, ‘Marlon,’ a comedy loosely inspired by the actor’s life.

The series centers on Marlon (Wayans), an unbefitting but loving father of two who is determined to successfully co-parent with his polar opposite ex-wife Angie (Atkins). Despite his Internet super-stardom, misguided fatherly advice, and over the top personality, he does his best to make sure his family always comes first.

Diallo Riddle is attached to the project as Marlon’s best friend Kevin and actress Bresha Webb will play Yvette, his wife’s best friend. While Kevin is his “business manager” which is really code for his extra house guest who sleeps on his couch, Yvette is Marlon’s worst enemy who has never liked him and constantly reminds him of that.

Notlim Taylor and Amir O’Neil will round out the cast as the children Zackery (O’Neil) and Marley (Taylor).

Wayans will also executive produce the series that is produced by Universal Television, 3 Arts and Wayans Brothers Entertainment.
