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.

Marlon confirmed the news on Instagram.
