Seinfeld returns to NBC (sort of)
In order to promote his upcoming animated feature, Bee Movie, Jerry Seinfeld is creating twenty "minisodes" to be shown on both NBC and NBC.com.
Live-action spots for the film have already been made, but it's not clear if these "minisodes" will be more of the same or something completely different. I've placed one of the movie spots at the end of this post.
Bee Movie, which comes out this November, is about a group of insects who star in a hit TV series. One of them goes on to continue a successful stand-up career and the other insects wind up on series no one watches. Or, it may be about a bee who decides he's unhappy with doing nothing but making honey, I'm not entirely sure.
The film stars Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Renée Zellweger, Rip Torn, John Goodman, and Matthew Broderick. The script was co-written by Spike Feresten, former Seinfeld scribe and current host of TalkShow with Spike Feresten, which just got a second season order on FOX.
