Jerry Seinfeld to bring new ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ and stand-up shows to Netflix

Jan. 18 (UPI) — New episodes of Jerry Seinfeld‘s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” will premiere exclusively on Netflix in late 2017, the streaming service announced Tuesday.

Seinfeld also has agreed to tape two new stand-up specials and will help develop scripted and non-scripted comedy programming for Netflix.

“Jerry is known the world over as both a great TV innovator and beloved comic voice,” Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix, said in a statement. “We are incredibly proud to welcome him to the Netflix comedy family.”

“When I first started thinking about “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” the entire Netflix business model consisted of mailing out DVDs in envelopes. I love that we are now joining together, both at very different points,” added Seinfeld, who produces, directs and hosts the show. “I am also very excited to be working with Ted Sarandos at Netflix, a guy and a place that not only have the same enthusiasm for the art of stand-up comedy as I do, but the most amazing technology platform to deliver it in a way that has never existed before. I am really quite charged up to be moving there.”

Prior seasons of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” — which originally streamed on Crackle — will also soon become available exclusively on Netflix.
