Sextuplets stars Wayans as Alan, a man who discovers he is a sextuplet during a journey to meet his birth mother. Wayans will play all six siblings, in addition to co-writing and producing the film.

Wayans previously collaborated with Netflix on the movie Naked and his stand-up comedy show, Woke-ish.

"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," he said in August.

Shannon came to fame on Saturday Night Live and has since appeared on Will and Grace, Sex and the City and Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. She recently starred in the critically-acclaimed film Other People.
