Launching MARLON on NBC

To help promote its new summer series from Marlon Wayans, NBC needed a way to establish Marlon’s digital credibility with platform-specific content and inject more of Marlon's hilarious takes on modern life. 

We developed a 10-episode promotional series, partnered with YouTube, and created The Marlon Way at the YouTube Space. We shot 10 Marlon Way episodes and 3 collaborations with established YouTube creators Jay Versace, Destorm Power, and Shameless Maya.  Released in the month prior to premiere, Marlon became the 2017 summer’s highest rated new scripted show.
