Plot Synopsis

Loosely inspired by the real life of star Marlon Wayans, this half-hour family comedy series centers on Marlon Wayne, a loving (but immature) father committed to co-parenting his two kids -- daughter Marley and son Zack -- with his very-together ex-wife, Ashley. 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. NBC premiered MARLON on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 from 9-10pm ET/PT, showing back-to-back new episodes. In the series opener (9pm), "Pilot," Marlon and Ashley try a friendly divorce for their children's sake, but things get tricky when Ashley decides to date again. Marlon struggles to keep a sponsor for his online channel, The Marlon Way. Then, in the night's second episode (9:30pm), "Cleaning Out the Closet," Ashley is shocked to learn that Marlon has a storage unit crammed full of things from when they were married and challenges him to have a yard sale to part with it all.
On Wednesday, September 13, 2017 from 9-10pm ET/PT, NBC premiered the season finale of MARLON, showing back-to-back new episodes. In the night's first new episode (9pm), "Appropriate Marlon," Marlon believes he can act appropriately to help Ashley get into an exclusive social club that prefers couples. Yvette is shocked to learn that Stevie fits in perfectly among the bourgeois clientele at the club. Then, in the season ender (9:30pm), "End of the Road," the first wedding anniversary since their divorce leads Marlon and Ashley to rehash the details of their first date. They each have very different recollections of how it went down.
