Alec Baldwin is headed back to Turner Classic Movies and The Essentials, and he's bringing along Upper Darby's Tina Fey.
Baldwin, who, along with the late Robert Osborne, cohosted the weekly show spotlighting "must-see" classics from 2009-11, will return as host on May 6. He'll be working with a rotating trio of special guests: David Letterman, Fey, and filmmaker William Friedkin (The French Connection).
Fey, who costarred with Baldwin on her NBC sitcom 30 Rock — and who's producing a new NBC comedy, Great News, that premieres April 25 — is scheduled to appear for four weeks this summer to discuss four of her favorite films: Rear Window (June 24), The Lady Eve (July 1), The Bride of Frankenstein (July 8), and Singin' in the Rain (Aug. 5).
Fey was a TCM guest programmer in December 2015, when she picked Desk Set, My Favorite Wife, and The Goodbye Girl.
