Legendary comedian and recent “Bel Air” Star Marlon Wayans is investing his time into a new comedy show based on his life at Starz!
Wayans will star in, co-write and executive-produce Book of Marlon, a half-hour project inspired by the comedian’s life and career. He’ll play a fictionalized version of himself, “exploring his professional life as a comedian and actor, as well as his personal life as he attempts to reconcile being a good person and loving father with being Marlon,” the official synopsis reads. Via TVLINE.
Diallo Riddle and Bashir Salahuddin will serve as showrunners on Book of Marlon and will exec-produce with Wayans, Michael Rotenberg and Rick Alvarez, who has worked with Wayans on numerous past projects.
There’s no word if Marlon will return to Peacock’s “Bel Air” for Season 2.
Congratulations to Marlon on the new show and we can’t wait to watch.
