Seinfeld returns with reality show
Funnyman Jerry Seinfeld is returning to TV in a new U.S. reality series.
The actor and star of long-running sitcom Seinfeld will show off his love for the auto industry in upcoming program Comics and Cars.
The 58 year old will team up with his pals Alec Baldwin, Ricky Gervais, and former writing partner Larry David to test-drive cars from their youth and trade stories and laughs.
According to The Daily, the project has not yet been picked up by a network, but the news should come as no surprise to fans as the stand-up comedian has been dropping hints about the gig over the last several weeks on Twitter.com.
In a series of tweets, he wrote, “Working on my New Thing. Shooting in Manhattan with the Great @alecbaldwin… New Seiny Gig Update: Always lovable Ricky Gervais and myself shooting today in City Island, NY… Seiny and LD (Larry David) back together again? What could this mean? Here’s a clue: A 1952 VW (Volkswagen).”
Seinfeld has largely remained absent from the small screen since his self-titled series went off the air in 1998, only making occasional cameos in such shows as David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm and Baldwin’s 30 Rock.
