NBC has greenlit the multi-camera family sitcom Marlon, starring Marlon Wayans, and Essence Atkins according to Deadline.
Here is a synopsis of the show:
Loosely inspired by the real life of star Marlon Wayans, this update to the classic family comedy centers on a loving Marlon – Season Pilot(but immature) 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.
Essence thanked God for the good news on her social media account, where she revealed that her family in Christ, we’re all praying for God to make provision and He came through for the all of them. #FamilyInChrist #PrayerWorks
Wow!!! A month ago we all prayed together and thanked God for his provision and the good news of all of us having booked pilots and this week WE ALL CELEBRATE SHOWS ON THE AIR THIS FALL!! #gratitude #community#familyinchrist
