Wayans brothers get VH1 comedy pilot

Posted on

VH1 has given the green light to a scripted comedy pilot from Keenen Ivory, Marlon, and Shawn Wayans. The Life and Times of Marcus ”Felony” Brown is a half-hour, single-camera project about an up-and-coming rapper (Darius McCrary) who has to relocate to Los Angeles to record a follow-up to his successful debut album. He makes the move with his hype man, E-Z (Vince Green); jet-setting manager, Cash (Jon Abrahams); and hard-partying bodyguard, Tiny (Marcello Thedford). Affion Crockett plays Seville, Marcus’ personal barber, while Toni Trucks is Tia, Marcus’ assistant. Production has just gotten underway. (Hollywood Reporter)
