Alec Baldwin is previewing his upcoming talk show on ABC – and the network’s already ordered eight additional episodes!
The network revealed the news about the show, which is modeled after Alec‘s interviews on his popular WYNC podcast, on Tuesday (February 27), according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A version of the pilot episode will air immediately after the 2018 Oscars on Sunday, March 4 as a preview.
The show promises to include two interviews per episode, and will see guests discuss a variety of topics like politics and comedy, as opposed to their latest projects.
“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,” said Alec.
