Bresha Webb and Essence Atkins

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 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 super stardom might get in the way sometimes, for Marlon, family really always does come first – even if he’s the biggest kid of all.
