Don't call it a "Seinfeld" reunion. Because, yes, there is something wrong with that.
But the five main characters in the greatest TV comedy of all time are "unreuniting" this fall for a five-episode story arc on "Curb Your Enthusiasm."
"I have always said there is not going to be a reunion show. They are lame," "Curb" star and "Seinfeld" creator Larry David told The New York Post. "Then I started to think 'What if I did this so called reunion show on Curb?' And this idea really resonated with me."
Jerry Seinfeld, Michael Richards (Kramer), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Elaine) and Jason Alexander (George) will join other show favorites such as Newman (Wayne Knight), Bania (Steve Hytner) and George's mom (Estelle Harris) for the seventh season of "Curb," which is set to air in September.
Jerry, George, Kramer, and Elaine, according to the Post, will be shown preparing for a fictional (as opposed to real) episode of "Seinfeld" -- which will actually air as part of the "Curb" season finale. This being a "Seinfeld-Curb" collaboration, things get a little confused.
"Of course, my (TV alter-ego) could wreck it," David hinted to the Post.
The non-reunion episodes include scenes filmed in Jerry's apartment and Monk's cafe and feature classic Seinfeldian moments such as Jerry and George debating whether it's all right to blow one's nose in a cloth restaurant napkin, the Post reported.
"There is regular "Curb" stuff in these shows as well," David told the Post. "The "Seinfeld" cast plays themselves offstage involved in regular Curb stories. I have got issues with them about other things."
