Ok, so the latest rumor being reported by The New York Post is that NBC is in talks with Jerry Seinfeld with regards to starting a new sitcom on the last-place peacock network.
According to the article, the show (which would premiere in June…sure seems fast) would take a page from Seinfeld co-creator Larry David’s HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm, and present Jerry living in NYC in an “exaggerated reality”.
Does this strike anyone as a good idea? I really enjoyed Seinfeld, and enjoy reruns/the dvds, but honestly the strength of the series was in the cynical writings of Larry David and the overall ensemble cast. I don’t recall anyone really loving the Jerry character, and if Bee Movie (plus the HORRIBLE “Bee Movie TV Juniors” which ran on NBC) was any indication, we’ve as a nation, fallen out of love with the observational comedian.
Let it die, Jerry. Enjoy your millions. Relax in that sunset.
NBC and Jerry Seinfeld shot down a New York Post report Friday that the comic was in talks with the network about a new sitcom. The report, citing no sources, said Seinfeld would play himself in a New York series similar to “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
“There’s nothing to it,” said NBC spokeswoman Rebecca Marks.
Seinfeld’s spokeswoman, Elizabeth Clark Zoia, also said the story was completely false.
“We appreciate the enthusiasm, however,” she said.
*whew* Now, NBC, let’s move forward with some original ideas and not a shit-ton of reality programing, k? K.
