The original ten-episodes of the web series, released between July and September, 2012, featured Seinfeld's conversations with comedy greats including Ricky Gervais , Michael Richards , Alec Baldwin and Larry David . The series garnered rave reviews and delivered more than 10 million streams.
"This series was basically a silly, fun experiment in making a talk show where the host only talks to people when he wants to. And only while engaging in a meaningless activity. I don't know if the idea was created by all the newly available technology to do it or vice versa. It certainly wouldn't have been possible just a couple of years earlier," said Seinfeld. "But I loved the freedom of form and just shooting it direct to the audience. My old friends at Sony took care of every possible issue and just made it all a pleasure. The response was great without us doing any ads or promotion and so we're going to keep going. I like this new world."
"We are thrilled to continue working with Jerry on more episodes of Comedians in Cars," said Eric Berger , executive vice president of digital networks for Sony Pictures Television and general manager of Crackle. "It's a privilege to bring this terrific show to our audiences across all of our distribution platforms, and to be able to offer advertisers the unique opportunity to position their brands amidst his creative genius."
