Netflix signs deal with Jerry Seinfeld for ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’

Continuing its aggressive move into the comedy space, Netflix has signed a deal with Jerry Seinfeld for two stand-up comedy specials as well as exclusive rights to his well-known online show “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”

“Comedians in Cars,” a cult hit in which Seinfeld tools around with fellow comedians and performers in a vintage car and then has coffee and talks comedy with them, was originally developed and produced for Sony Corp.’s 6758, -1.34% online video platform Crackle.

New episodes as well as reruns of old episodes will be available on Netflix in late 2017. Among those who have appeared are Howard Stern, Steve Martin, Tina Fey and even President Barack Obama.
