ABC Studios has inked a two-year first-look deal with Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin’s prodco, El Dorado Pictures.
Under its new agreement, El Dorado Pictures will develop scripted and unscripted projects under the ABC Studios banner. The production company’s development executive, Mallory Schwartz, will oversee the slate which Baldwin will executive produce.
“Alec Baldwin is one of the most prolific, creative people in the entertainment industry,” said Patrick Moran, president of ABC Studios, in a statement. “We’re looking forward to channeling that creativity for our studio.”
ABC Studios also announced that it would be picking up the third season of Match Game (pictured), hosted by Baldwin. According to Channing Dungey, the series is an “integral part” of ABC’s ‘Fun & Games’ block of programming.
The game show features two contestants as they attempt to match the answers of six celebrities in a game of fill-in the missing blank.
Match Game is produced by FremantleMedia North America with Alec Baldwin, FMNA’s Jennifer Mullin, Scott St. John and Mallory Schwartz as executive producers.
