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.
