Jerry Seinfeld Gets Sued Over Comedians in CarsFebruary 13, 2018 12:22am

Jerry Seinfeld has another successful show on his hands, and TMZ reports that he's just been sued over it. The gossip site says that producer Christian Charles claims to have pitched the idea for Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee to Seinfeld back in 2002, then worked with Seinfeld on a pilot in 2011.

However, the lawsuit alleges that Seinfeld felt Charles was seeking too much credit and money and thus went on to make the show without him. One interesting tidbit: The suit says Seinfeld pulls in $750,000 for each episode on Netflix.

Reviews of the show are mixed: This one thinks it's the "perfect Seinfeld sequel," while this one thinks viewers never learn anything all that interesting from the chats.
