Seinfeld alum Jason Alexander has signed to star in a brand new comedy pilot for Adult Swim, created by Adam Lustick (The Harvard Sailing Team, Silicon Valley, The Office).
This Jason Alexander pilot does not have a name yet, but it revolves around an award winning psychotherapist (Alexander) who snaps one day, turning his treatment sessions more and more outrageous. Since he’s this kind of famous physician, his peers are unwilling to question his systems that are unusual and non-traditional.
The quarter hour, live action pilot will be made in house via Alive and Kicking. Adult Swim is making its pitch to advertisers today during the Turner Broadcasting System upfront demonstration in NYC. The Turner-owned web declared its 201516 slate last week ahead of the current demo.
Alexander magnificently played George Costanza for nine years on the situation comedy happening Seinfeld.
He was epic as Larry David’s alter ego, which part earned him seven Emmy nominations and four Golden Globe nominations. We can only just imagine how perfect he will be in this part that is next.
You mightn’t understand that Alexander even directed several TV series including Seinfeld, Everybody Hates Chris, Criminal Minds, Mike And Molly and starred in and won the Country Music Association’s Video of the Year award for his way of Brad Paisley’s “Online.”
