Book of Marlon, a new comedy by Marlon Wayans, has a new home.

The comedy that was originally commissioned by HBO Max and based on the life and career of the actor and comedian will now be produced by Starz, the network has revealed.

The move follows structural changes at the parent firm of the streaming service, Warner Bros, which merged with Discovery earlier this year.

Numerous series and films have been cancelled as a result of the studio's radical adjustments under David Zaslav's new leadership.

In the half-hour project Book of Marlon, Wayans will portray a fictitious version of himself.

Diallo Riddle and Bashir Salahuddin are set to serve as the showrunners.

Wayans will explore his professional life as an actor and comic as well as his personal life in the series, which also serves as a sequel to his namesake sitcom Marlon on NBC.

He will try to balance being a nice guy and a loving parent with being Marlon.

Wayans, Riddle, Salahuddin, and Alvarez will co-write the pilot episode.

No release date has been set for the comedy series yet.
