[ 1995-1999 ]

The Wayans Bros.



Shawn and Marlon Wayans played themselves in this sit-com about two brothers struggling in vain to make it rich the easy way.  The first show to air on the WB network in 1995.  Co-starring John Witherspoon as Pops, and Lela Rochon as Lisa (first season).  Billy Van Zandt & Jane Milmore developed the show, wrote the WB pilot, and executive produced the first season.  Billy also did the VO in the opening credits of every episode (“Cut. Print.  Beautiful, guys!”) and Jane guest-starred as a neighbor in a Neighborhood Watch episode.  A revamping of the show in season two moved the setting from Pops diner into an office building with a new roster of supporting characters.
