“Larry and I are enormously grateful to Netflix for taking this chance on us,” Jerry Seinfeld said in a clearly tongue-in-cheek statement. “It takes a lot of guts to trust two schmucks who literally had zero experience in television when we made this thing. We really got carried away I guess. I didn’t realize we made so many of them. Hope to recoup god knows how many millions it must have taken to do. But worth all the work if people like it. Crazy project.”
Netflix’s stock shot up at the news of the official start date, and they released a trailer to introduce everyone to the show they already know.
