The Biz: The Research Memo That Almost Killed Seinfeld

Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander

Twenty-five years ago, two dozen NBC executives gathered in a screening room in Burbank to watch a new sitcom pilot starring Jerry Seinfeld. Then called The Seinfeld Chronicles, it was a 23-minute mix of the comic's stand-up routines and idiosyncratic, conversational scenes dealing with such mundane topics as doing laundry, securing the top button of one's shirt, and deciphering the intent of a woman who was spending the night in Jerry's apartment.... read more

Watch the Full Seinfeld Reunion

Jason Alexander, Wayne Knight, Jerry Seinfeld

Seinfeld's Jerry and George reunited for one of the Super Bowl's best commercials — and there's more where that came from.

In the 90-second spot, Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld) meets up with George (Jason Alexander) for coffee at their favorite haunt, Tom's Restaurant. The two waste no time before they start bickering about nothing, and even Newman (Wayne Knight) stops by. The scene, however, is just a segment from Seinfeld's Crackle web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

In a statement to The New York Times, Seinfeld explained how the reunion happened.

"Fox approached Larry [David] and me about doing some kind ofSeinfeld reunion for the halftime broadcast because of the New York connection," Seinfeld said. "So we thought throwing Jerry, George and Newman into a Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee was a fun way to do it. Larry and I wrote the script in one sitting, just like old times, and working with him, Jason and Wayne was a total blast, as it always was."

Premise: The landmark Jerry Seinfeld-Larry David creation about four neurotic New Yorkers was ostensibly about nothing, but of course was uniquely something: the master of sitcom domain (earning 10 Emmys over its nine-year run) that its star described as 'micro-concept TV.' No hugging, no kissing, little plot. Just brilliant, quirky takes on the seemingly mundane events of daily life. The 'Seinfeld' finale was the third-highest rated series-ender ever, topped only by those of 'Cheers' and 'M*A*S*H.'
