Fred Willard will no longer be part of Market Warriors following his arrest on suspicion of a lewd public act Wednesday night, the producers confirmed Thursday. In an official statement dictated to EW, Boston public television station WGBH said:

“Given the unfortunate news reported today, effective immediately Fred Willard no longer will be involved with the Market Warriors series.”

All previous and un-aired episodes featuring Willard’s narration will now be redubbed by Antiques Roadshow host Mark L. Walberg.

Willard, 72, is best known for his deadpan delivery in numerous Christopher Guest comedies including Best in Show and for his Emmy nominated appearances on TV’s Modern Family.
