Loosely inspired by Wayans’ real life, the comedy co-stars Essence Atkins, Notlim Taylor, Amir O’Neil, Bresha Webb and Diallo Riddle. It follows “a loving — but immature — father committed to co-parenting his two kids with his very-together ex-wife,” a synopsis said.

Wayans is best known for his work on the sketch comedy series In Living Color and in the Scary Movie franchise.
