Alec Baldwin exits the ABC family sitcom he was working on with Black-ish creator Kenya Barris
Baldwin will still serve as an executive producer on the comedy, which he opted out of starring in after he and Barris realized he wasn’t right for the part following a table read, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Baldwin also wanted to film the comedy in New York, while Barris is headquartered in Los Angeles. ABC gave a straight-to-series pickup for the untitled comedy, but it will now revert to pilot status since Baldwin is no longer attached.
