"Marlon"
Season Premiere Thursday, June 14 at starting at 9 PM ET/PT on NBC
 
          In the season premiere 9 PM episode, "Model Parent," Marlon (Marlon Wayans) convinces Ashley (Essence Atkins) to let Zack model for a kids’ athletic line after he is approached in a mall. After the shoot, Stevie (Diallo Riddle), Yvette (Bresha Webb), Marlon and Ashley are horrified to see that the photos have been altered as the shirt he is modeling now contains the phrase “Funky Monkey.” Ashley and Marlon decide to pull Zack from the campaign after the advertising executives fail to see the racism of the shirt.
 
          In the 9:30 PM second episode, "Wingman,"  Marlon offers to be Ashley’s wingman during a night out at a club. All is going well until Marlon meets someone too and Ashley finds herself jealous. Yvette gives Stevie a makeover and kisses him in an attempt to make her ex jealous.
 

          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 sometimes 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.
