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

Baldwin also hosts and executive produces Match Game on ABC, and his company, El Dorado Pictures, has a two-year first-look deal with the studio. Sundays with Alec Baldwin is produced for ABC by El Dorado Pictures with Jason Schrift serving as executive producer.
