Jerry Seinfeld launches new show about cars, comedians and coffee

Titled "Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee," Seinfeld's new web show looks to be a fun ride.

Do you enjoy cars and comedians? How about the two together? Well, you are in luck, because comedian Jerry Seinfeld’s new show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is set to debut on July 19. Based on the name and clip, the show appears to be just as described. The show’s trailer showcases Seinfeld, along with fellow funnymen like Ricky Gervais, Alec Baldwin, Larry David and former Seinfeld co-star Michael Richards. Aside from the comedians, the clip shows Seinfeld driving around in a number of classic cars including an old Mercedes, a Triumph and a Porsche.

Although the show was pitched in May, it has not landed on any network. It has instead found its way onto Crackle, an online digital network that features commercially supported streaming video. Similar to YouTube and Hulu, Crackle provides it content through a web syndication network. Interestingly, Crackle is owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment who currently owns the rights to Seinfeld.

I think that it is going to flop - just like most of these celebrity car shows in the US. When it comes down to it, the kind of "car guys" who watch the Speed channel dont have anything in common with a panel of rich guys joking about how they only bought one Lamborghini last week. I like Jerry Seinfeld but real car guys dont like fake car guys and that is what celebs like seinfeld are. It isnt like Jerry has ever been wrenching on his car out in the driveway...hes into cars because he has millions of dollars laying around so he spends some on cars. that doesnt equal a car guy.
