Jerry Seinfeld bringing reality series to NBC
NEW YORK – Jerry Seinfeld is headed back to NBC as the producer of a comic reality series about marriage.
The series, called "The Marriage Ref," will feature a real-life couple involved in a marital spat. A team of celebrities will provide commentary and a "referee," whose identity hasn't been determined, will give the final verdict on who is right and wrong.
Seinfeld, in a statement, stressed that it's a comedy show, not a therapy show.
His production partner, former "Oprah Winfrey" producer Ellen Rakieten, says it's not clear yet whether Seinfeld will appear on the air. It's also not clear when the series will start, but producers are shooting for next season.
