"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 (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.
(TODAY.com is powered by msnbc.com, which is a joint venture between NBC Universal and Microsoft.)
The first, minute-long teaser for the show features Seinfeld just cruising along with friends such as "Seinfeld" co-creator Larry David, "Seinfeld" co-star Michael 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 on July 19th on Crackle.com. Seinfeld will also make a guest appearance in a three episode arc this season on "Louie."
Judging from the trailer, do you think the show will be as funny as "Seinfeld" was? Share your thoughts on our Facebook page!
