Alec Baldwin To Narrate New True Crime Series ‘Art Fraud’ For Cavalry Audio And iHeart.


Actor Alec Baldwin is expanding his work in podcasting. Baldwin and his production company, El Dorado Pictures, are teaming up with Cavalry Audio to produce a new true crime series. The eight-episode podcast Art Fraud chronicles the fall of one of the oldest, and most revered, art galleries in New York.


Narrated by Baldwin, and containing never-before-heard interviews with the mastermind behind the long-running con at The Knoedler gallery, its creators say Art Fraud paints the clearest picture yet about the greatest deception in the history of American art. The podcast is being marketed and distributed by the iHeartPodcast Network.


The series was written by Michael Shnayerson and based on an article he wrote for Vanity Fair. It detailed how The Knoedler Gallery over nearly four decades sold paintings from artists such as Motherwell, de Kooning and Jackson Pollack totaling more than $80 million. The only problem was that they were all fake.


Both Baldwin and Shnayerson will serve as Executive Producers of the Art Fraud podcast, along with Cavalry Media’s Matt DelPiano and Keegan Rosenberger. The producers include Branden Morgan, a Senior Podcast Producer at Cavalry Audio, as well as Zach McNees, Nikki Ettore and Lindsay Hoffman from the iHeartPodcast Network.


Baldwin also currently hosts the long-running talk show podcast Here’s The Thing for iHeartRadio. The series moved to iHeart in Nov. 2020 after more than a decade at WNYC Studios.
