Comedy Legends & Icons - Post By Amanda Shaw

Damon Wayans Sr. and Jr. are teaming up for a father-son comedy pilot in the works. The legendary comedian and actor Damon Wayans Sr. and his son, actor and comedian Damon Wayans Jr., are taking their comedic talent to the next level with a new pilot as reported by Variety.

The multi-camera comedy’s logline reads, “Legendary talk radio host and happily divorced “Poppa” (Damon Wayans Sr.) has his point of view challenged at work when a new female co-host is hired, and at home where he finds himself still parenting his adult son (Damon Wayans Jr.), a brilliant dreamer who is trying to pursue his passion while being a responsible father and husband.”


Wayans Sr. is known for his iconic role in the hit 90s comedy series “In Living Color,” where he served as writer, producer, and actor. He has also starred in numerous film and television projects, including “My Wife and Kids,” “Blankman,” and “The Last Boy Scout.” His son, Damon Wayans Jr., has made a name for himself in the entertainment industry with his roles in popular comedy series such as “Happy Endings” and “New Girl.” He has also appeared in films like “Dance Flick” and “Let’s Be Cops.”

While Damon Wayans Sr. will be starring in the show, he will also serve as an executive producer and co-writer with Kevin Hench, the former executive producer of Last Man Standing. Damon ΦWayans Jr. will also star and executive produce in the series. Vice president of productions, Kameron Tarlow, will oversee the production with Two Shakes Entertainment. CBS Studios is behind the now highly anticipated project.


The pilot is still in the early stages of development, and no network or streaming platform has been attached yet. However, with the success of other father-son comedies like “The Jeff Foxworthy Show” and “Til Death,” this new pilot has the potential to be a hit.

It’s clear that the Wayans family is a comedic force to be reckoned with. CBS will be sharing additional information regarding the creation of the show in the coming weeks. The father/son duo recently worked together on an episode of CBS’s Happy Together in 2018.

In conclusion, Damon Wayans Sr. and Jr. are teaming up for a new father-son comedy pilot, bringing their unique comedic styles and strong familial bond to the small screen. The pilot has the potential to be a hit with audiences and is a much-anticipated project for fans of both actors.
