The Wayans Bros: Season 2
In this outrageous half-hour comedy, comedians Shawn and Marlon Wayans star as two brothers with little more in common than their family name, the one-bedroom brownstone they share in NYC and an innate ability to disagree. Paula Jai Parker (Hustle & Flow) stars this season as Monique, who works at a card shop in the same building where Pops' diner and Shawn's newly acquired newsstand are located.
The sophomore season sees Shawn (Shawn Wayans) laid off from his job and Pops (John Witherspoon) setting him up with his own newsstand next to Pops' Diner in the lobby of the Neidermeyer. While Shawn takes on his new career with maturity and determination, a jealous Marlon struggles to make ends meet bussing tables at Pops' and working part-time for Shawn.
Sparks soon fly when the brothers meet Monique Lattimore (Paula Jai Parker), a former "little rich girl" now recruited into the ranks of the working class. While Marlon's lust for her goes unnoticed, Shawn and Monique begin a flirtatious and antagonistic relationship. He thinks she's a snob, and she thinks he's beneath her, but they can't stop thinking about each other.
Keeping things secure in the Neidermeyer is female security guard Lou Malino (Jill Tasker). Lou rules her domain with an iron fist and a very sharp tongue...something Marlon soon learns.
