NBC has announced that the network has ordered a new comedy pilot from Marlon Wayans, titled “Marlon,” which is inspired by the actor/comedian’s life.
Wayans will star in (and produce) the series that will follow the escapades of an unfitting but loving father who is committed to successful co-parenting with his polar opposite ex-wife.
The comedy series will be produced by Universal Television, 3 Arts and Wayans Brothers Entertainment.
Chris Moynihan will pen the script and executive produce alongside Rick Alvarez and Michael Rotenberg.
Also, NBC has ordered a comedy pilot set in the DC Comics universe titled “Powerless” and it’s billed as an office comedy about the exceedingly average employees at an insurance company and their quest to find their own power.
Ben Queen is penning the script, with Michael Patrick Jann executive producing and directing the pilot.
Wayans will next be seen on the big screen in “Fifty Shades of Black.”
