Black America’s funniest family is keeping busy. After a successful stint starring in the hit ABC comedy, “My Wife and Kids,” reports confirm the Damon Wayans will return to the network for a new show.
The actor and comedian will play an actor who plays “America’s favorite dad” in a sitcom, but who actually has a dysfunctional family in his real life.
Production for the show is underway, and is currently untitled.
While you’re waiting for Damon’s show to launch, and for Marlon to hit the big screen as Richard Pryor, you can tune into the next generation of the Wayans. Check out Damon Wayans Jr.’s upcoming show, “Happy Endings.” The comedic sitcom is based on the lives of a group of friends and is set to premiere on ABC during 2010-11 as a mid-season replacement.
