#SceneTeaser: First Look at Marlon Wayans’ New Series

Marlon Wayans is heading back to network television in a series loosely based on his real life.

And yep, you can bet this will be a wild and highly energetic ride as the sitcom, titled Marlon teams him with his frequent co-star Essence Atkins.

The NBC show is a modern family comedy that sees Wayans as an immature but loving father, who is committed to co-parenting his two kids with his stable and well-put together ex-wife, played by Atkins.

Packed with questionable fatherly advice, tons of personality and unpredictable happenings, no matter how much growing up Marlon needs to do, it’s obvious that the center of his world is family.
