An ESPN-branded Saturday afternoon programming block is landing on ABC stations in April, reports B&C.

Entitled "ESPN Sports Saturday," the block will feature an hour-long original show called "Winners Bracket," where "Sportsnation" co-host Michelle Beadle and the NFL’s Marcellus Wiley discuss the weekly world of sports via a bracket setup. 

ESPN will grab segments from "E:60," "Homecoming with Rick Reilly," and "30 for 30" to round out a second hour. Hannah Storm will host the entire block. 

The block is set to air April 4, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. until August, then back again in December. Local or special programming may preempt the block.
