Marlon Wayans, Essence Atkins to Star in New NBC Family Sitcom

We know what we’ll be watching this fall! 

A New Series Based on the Movie ‘Dear White People’ is Headed to Netflix

Deadline reports that NBC has just ordered a new family sitcom starring comedians Marlon Wayans and Essence Atkins. The series, aptly titled ‘Marlon,’ is said to be loosely based off of Wayans’ own life.

The plot of the show revolves around divorced parents, played by Wayans and Atkins, who are trying to navigate the complicated world of co-parenting. While the mother has it together, the father’s parenting skills are a bit subpar to say the least. Perhaps because he’s the biggest kid of all.
