Jerry Seinfeld's new series -- don't worry, it's better than The Marriage Ref

Jerry Seinfeld doesn't really need to try another sitcom or series or reality show or anything. After all, Seinfeld was one of the funniest shows of all time. Once you've done that, you're forgiven if you just take it easy. But he keeps doing live shows, which is great, because he's pretty much the most accopmlished stand-up comedian alive. The Marriage Ref? Well, nice try, but it never really achieved lift-off. I always got the idea that one thing Seinfeld really likes is just hanging around with other funny people. Which is why his new web-only series looks promising.
Details about Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee are still a little sketchy, but from the looks of this trailer, Jerry drives around in one of his cool collectable classic cars, chatting with a fellow comedian who's riding shotgun, and, what? They stop somewhere for coffee? What more do you need?
I like Seinfeld, I like cars, and I like comedy, so . . . I'm in.
