Netflix once again has made a major move into the comedy space by now acquiring Jerry Seinfeld’s web series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. The project which for several season premiered on Crackle finds itself apart of a deal made by Seinfeld and Netflix. According to this now shared deal we will also be seeing some specials from the comedy great on the streaming service.
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is on the move. Jerry Seinfeld has made Netflix the new home of his Emmy-nominated series. The massive exclusive Netflix comedy deal, which starts this year, also includes two new Seinfeld stand-up specials as well as the development of scripted and non-scripted comedy programming for the Internet network. The first special will be released this year. Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee launched on Sony’s Crackle in 2012 and just premiered its ninth season, which will be the last on the free, ad-supported streaming service. The next 24-episode season of Comedians in Cars will launch on Netflix in late 2017, when the library of all existing episodes of the talk show also will migrate from Crackle to Netflix. “Jerry is known the world over as both a great TV innovator and beloved comic voice,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix. “We are incredibly proud to welcome him to the Netflix comedy family.”
