Jerry Seinfeld has launched his own web series, and he's still talking about nothing!
Jerry Seinfeld has a brand new series. It's not on TV. It's not on HBO. It's on HustleTurf aka the web. Seingeld's new series is called Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and he's already lined up a significant lineup of guests including Alec Baldwin, Michael Richards and Larry David, who is his guest on the 1st show.
"I don't know if he's looking for a big hit, but it feels like he's going for something cool and fun for himself," noted David Wild, the author of Seinfeld: The Totally Unauthorized Tribute (Not That There's Anything Wrong With That)" during a recent interview. "I expect to love it myself."
Wild noted, "Jerry Seinfeld is in this position that's sort like one of the Beatles after the Beatles broke up. It's sort of, how do you follow that act? You have a guy with this incredible, fertile comic imagination and a love of comedy, and it's almost impossible to follow SEINFELD."
Since his TV show ended in 1998, Seinfeld has voiced an animated bee in Bee Movie, palled around with a cartoon Superman in a series of American Express commercials, had cameos on 30 Rock and Curb Your Enthusiasm and produced a short-lived reality show called The Marriage Ref. This new Web show may be Seinfeld's bid to appeal to a younger audience used to watching content on the Internet and mobile devices.
Notes Larry David, co-creator of the Seinfeld TV series, "You have finally done a show about nothing!"
