It's On, We Guess: Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee" Comes July 19

Follow Joel

Back in May we heard that Jerry Seinfeld was pitching a new TV show about cars. Today the first teaser video has been released, revealing the name of the show to be Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. Which sounds more like an elaborate put-on than pure entertainment to us.

Set to make its debut on July 19th, the show seems to be exactly what you would expect based on the name. The video shows Seinfeld driving around in various classic cars ranging from old Porsches and Mercedes to an old Triumph. Passengers in the clip include stars like Alec Baldwin, Ricky Gervais, and Larry David--they run the gamut from unintentionally funny to truly funny, don't they?

According to the show's website, the premiere will take place on July 19th at 9:00 pm ET on Crackle, a Sony-driven iTunes alternative.

Do you think this new show will be hilarious? Will it have what it takes (i.e., viewers) to succeed where The Car Show failed? Will it be all about the cars or the comedians? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below. You can also send us a tweet on Twitter or leave us a comment on Facebook.

  1. Sounds a bit like the UK program where Robert Llewellyn of Red Dwarf fame picks up celebrities in his car and interviews while transporting them to their destination.Really low overheads for the production company just fit the car out with cameras/sound,edit on a lap top and televise.
    I fail to see the need for classic cars as it detracts from the interview, whats the real intent a car show or the interview? not impressed!

    Bad stuff?

  2. Though the concept is cool, the show certainly has the potential to be very boring. Although it will be great to see what these comedians are like off the screen.

    And yes, I'm not surprised that they simply copied a concept from overseas.

  4. Seinfeld is definitely a car guy, and a brilliant comedian, fingers crossed he can make it work, we could all use to laugh more (esp. after the pricing on the 991...).
