Sextuplets tells the story of Alan (Marlon Wayans), a man embarking on a personal journey to meet his birth mother before the arrival of his first child.
When Alan meets his brother, Russell, he discovers that he was born a sextuplet and decides to seek out his four other siblings (all played by Wayans).
Together, the two brothers set out on a road trip to track down the rest of the family that they’ve never known, and Alan quickly realizes he may have gotten more than he bargained for.
Wayans said he was “Excited to be in business with Netflix on yet another project. I love how they embrace comedy and diversity. I am looking forward to doing the thing I love most… comedy.”
Wayans also serves as co-producer of the Netflix series.
Producer Rick Alvarez added: “Ever since we received the script from Nathan Reimann, Marlon and I have considered this movie a labor of love. Couldn’t be happier to team up once again with Mike Tiddes and Netflix.”
Principal photography is scheduled to being in September in Atlanta. Netflix will release the film globally in 2019.
