ABC TO BROADCAST A SPECIAL SNEAK PEEK OF 'SUNDAYS WITH ALEC BALDWIN,' FOLLOWING THE 90TH OSCARS(R) ON SUNDAY, MARCH 4

Series Has Been Picked Up for Eight Additional Episodes to Air Later This Year

ABC has picked up "Sundays with Alec Baldwin," a new one-hour talk show hosted by Oscar nominee and Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) Award-winning actor Alec Baldwin, featuring one-on-one conversations with some of the most interesting people from American pop culture. From ABC and Baldwin's El Dorado Pictures, a sneak peek will air SUNDAY, MARCH 4 (11:35 p.m. EST/10:00 p.m. PST), following the 90th Oscars, on The ABC Television Network.

"I'm excited about this show and grateful to ABC for taking a chance on me in what is, admittedly, a crowded field," said Baldwin. "I've enjoyed doing my podcast for WNYC and look forward to the challenge of doing a show on camera."

"Alec's intellect, wit and wealth of life experience afford him a voice and perspective we haven't seen before in this format," said Channing Dungey, president, ABC Entertainment. "When we shot the pilot, we knew immediately we had something special that we couldn't wait to share. We are excited to be working on a series that showcases Alec as one of today's most compelling conversationalists and highlights the type of intimate discussions that he has captured on his podcast for years."

This first look features two intimate and engaging conversations with award-winning comedic icons. First, a candid and entertaining discussion with long-time friend Jerry Seinfeld on the state of comedy in the current social and political climate, and his life before and after "Seinfeld." Next up is Kate McKinnon, someone Baldwin says is one of the most talented people with whom he has ever worked. They discuss "Saturday Night Live," her early childhood performances that borrowed from scandalous headlines and the cast of characters that have made her a household name.

Baldwin hosts and executive produces "Match Game," now in season three on The ABC Television Network. Additionally, Baldwin's company, El Dorado Pictures, has a two-year first-look deal with ABC Studios. Since 1980, Baldwin has appeared in numerous productions on stage, in films and on television. He has received a Tony(R) nomination ("A Streetcar Named Desire," 1992), an Oscar nomination ("The Cooler," 2004), and has won three Emmy Awards, three Golden Globes and seven consecutive Screen Actors Guild Awards as Best Actor in a Comedy Series for his role on NBC's "30 Rock." In 2017, Baldwin won his third Emmy for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series for "Saturday Night Live" and was nominated for Outstanding Host for ABC's "Match Game." His films include "The Hunt for Red October," "Glengarry Glen Ross," "Malice," "The Edge," "It's Complicated," "Blue Jasmine," "Still Alice" and "Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation," among many others. Baldwin's latest book "You Can't Spell America Without Me" was published in November 2017.

"Sundays with Alec Baldwin" is produced for ABC by El Dorado Pictures. Jason Schrift ("Jimmy Kimmel Live!") serves as executive producer.
