Premieres Wednesday, August 16 at 9 and 9:30 PM ET/PT on NBC
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 the family really always does come first — even if he’s the biggest kid of all.
In the 9 PM premiere episode, “Pilot,” exes Marlon (Marlon Wayans) and Ashley (Essence Atkins) try a friendly divorce for their children's sake, but things get tricky when Ashley decides to date again. Marlon struggles to keep a sponsor for his online channel, The Marlon Way. Bresha Webb, Diallo Riddle, Notlim Taylor and Amir O'Neil also star.
In the 9:30 PM episode, “Cleaning Out the Closet,” Ashley is shocked to learn that Marlon has a storage unit crammed full of things from when they were married and challenges him to have a yard sale to part with it all.
