Synopsis

The first season of The Wayans Bros. finds siblings Shawn and Marlon Williams (Shawn Wayans, Marlon Wayans) sharing the same NYC brownstone, with serious Shawn bringing in most of the money while merry-making Marlon is either goofing off or promoting some wild get-rich-quick scheme. Shawn hopes to earn enough money at his delivery job to wed Lisa Saunders (Lela Rochon), daughter of a high-profile doctor. Marlon meanwhile holds a temporary job as kitchen help at Pops' Place, the restaurant owned by the brothers' dad, John "Pops" Williams (John Witherspoon). The restaurant is housed in the huge Neidermayer Building, where pint-sized Lou Malino (Jill Tasker) is security guard. Marlon's co-workers are short-order cook Benny (Benny Quan) and counter girl Lupe (Joanna Sanchez). This season's episodes find Shawn getting sucked into Marlon's various "can't miss" business ventures, such as promoting a grooming product called Goop-Hair-It-Is (which unfortunately sets fire to the scalp!), a cab service catering to black people called Afro Pick-You-Up, and a children's-entertainment service which nearly gets Marlon and Shawn killed by a fearsome "Barney" knockoff named Brazilla. In other adventures, Marlon tries to become a male model, Pops gets locked out of the house when he stands up to his formidable wife, the brothers end up in the slammer for nonpayment of several parking tickets, and future series regular Paula Jai Parker shows up in a different role than Monique Lattimore -- specifically, the girlfriend of a particularly fiendish gangster. Among the iconic African-American guest stars appearing in The Wayans Bros.' inaugural season are Garrett Morris, Sherman Hemsley, Richard Roundtree, and Gary Coleman. ~ Hal Erickson
