Jerry Seinfeld’s New Show ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ Gets First Teaser (Video)
by Jordan Zakarin
Seinfeld, famously, was a show about nothing. Jerry Seinfeld‘s new show, on the other hand, is clearly a show about something; it’s right there in the title: Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The meaning of something, of course, is relative.
The Emmy winner, who has largely stuck to stand-up comedy since his famed sitcom ended in 1998 (aside from his foray into reality/game shows, with NBC’s The Marriage Ref) is back with a new web show that combines his love of classic wheels and Rolodex of top-notch comedian friends.
The minute-long first teaser for the show features Seinfeld just cruising along with friends such as Seinfeld co-creator Larry David, Seinfeld co-starMichael Richards, Ricky Gervais, Alec Baldwin and Colin Quinn. That covers the comedians in cars; presumably, the getting coffee part will come a bit later.
The show debuts July 19 on Crackle.com. Seinfeld also will make a guest appearance in a three episode arc this season on FX’s Louie.
