Alec Baldwin Lends His Talent to the Discovery Channel


If you’ve ever wanted to soak in Alec Baldwin’s breathy baritone while you gazed at stunning images of the icy polar landscape, then your strange fantasy has come true. The new natural history series from Discovery, Frozen Planet, boasts the vocal talent of the 30 Rock Actor. The show comes from the creators of the groundbreaking series Planet Earth (which Ghostbusters‘ legend Sigourney Weaver narrated) and the co-producers on Life. It took four years for the nature crew to film ” … every nation inside the Arctic and Antarctic circles.” In case you’re wondering about the specifics, that adds up to 2,356 days in the field, one and a half years at sea, more than six months on the ice, and 134 hours beneath the ice while filming in the polar oceans. Let the smooth sounds of Baldwin keep you warm on your Discovery journey when the series premieres in March next year. Will you be tuning in? [via THR]
