Marlon cast 

Review of "Marlon" 9/26/17 by Suzanne
airs this Summer on NBC

This aired in August on NBC. I hope it comes back because it's a pretty funny sitcom. I don't find most sitcoms today to be very funny. I'm not saying it's the most hilarious show out there, but it did make me laugh.

Marlon Wayans pulls out all the stops playing a guy similar to himself (although a lot more annoying, probably).  His character is a childish guy who lives with his friend but still keeps close ties to his wife and children.  He seems not to be able to grow up.  If it weren't a sitcom, he would be pretty pathetic.

I really enjoyed the show and its characters. I hope NBC makes more funny shows like this! It's a shame they didn't have the confidence in it to make it a real series during the year rather than just running them at the end of the summer.


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 family really always does come first — even if he’s the biggest kid of all.
The cast includes Marlon Wayans, Essence Atkins, Notlim Taylor, Amir O’Neil, Bresha Webb and Diallo Riddle
Christopher Moynihan serves as writer and executive producer. Marlon Wayans, Rick Alvarez, Michael Rotenberg and director Andy Ackerman (pilot) also executive produce. “Marlon” is produced by Universal Television, Wayans Brothers Entertainment, Bicycle Path Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.
