Debuting on Wednesday, August 16 Marlon stars Marlon Wayans (R) of In Living Color and Scary Movie fame as a loving but immature father co-parenting his children with his ex-wife Ashley, portrayed by Essence Atkins (R).
A throwback to sitcoms of the early 2000’s, Marlon finds his own while simultaneously making us think of his older brother Damion of My, Wife and Kids. While Damon’s character was far more mature than Marlon’s they still share the same overreactions typical of sitcom dads. The typical formula of sitcoms is present with the two children, Marley and Zach; a teenage girl on the verge of dating and the wisecracking son.
There seems to be a reemergence for the actor who is not only known as the younger brother of Shawn, Keenan, and Damon or as a comedian but for his work in the nineties drug film Requiem for a Dream. Marlon has skills that far surpass what he does with comedy but there is no denying the presence he has on screen.
You can also catch Marlon in the Netflix original Naked, a Groundhog Day Esque film. A strong believer in writing his own material, Wayans manages to be a strong performer and creator in a world of sitcoms that just need to be seen.
Marlon is an NBC sitcom premiering on August 16th. After the show premieres, it will be available to watch on NBC.com.
