The second season of NBC’s comedy series Marlon will receive its UK premiere on Netflix UK on Wednesday August 22nd, it has been announced.
Loosely based on the life of Marlon Wayans, Marlon follows Marlon, a loving 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 comedy series is produced by Universal Television and stars Marlon Wayans, Essence Atkins, Notlim Taylor, Amir O’Neil, Bresha Webb and Diallo Riddle.
In the opening episode of the show’s second season, titled Model Parent, Marlon (Marlon Wayans) convinces Ashley (Essence Atkins) to let Zack model for a kids’ athletic line after he is approached in a mall. After the shoot, Stevie (Diallo Riddle), Yvette (Bresha Webb), Marlon and Ashley are horrified to see that the photos have been altered as the shirt he is modeling now contains the phrase “Funky Monkey.” Ashley and Marlon decide to pull Zack from the campaign after the advertising executives fail to see the racism of the shirt.
