    Michael Richards returns to series TV

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...29c5_blog.html

    In his first regular series role in more than a decade, “Seinfeld” alum Michael Richards is set to co-star opposite “Cheers’” veterans Kirstie Alley and Rhea Perlman in the TV Land pilot “Giant Baby,” the Web site Deadline reports.

    Alley stars as a Broadway diva whose son turns up, looking to connect with her after his adopted mother dies. Richards will play Alley’s limo driver.

    Richards was a fan fave on NBC’s long-running “Seinfeld,” after which his own NBC series tanked quickly. Except for a Seinfeld story arc on Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” on HBO, Richards has not had a regular TV series gig since. He did, however, continue to perform at comedy clubs — which got him into hot water in ’06, after an on-stage tirade and racist slur, in response to a heckler, was caught on tape, and then some people claimed it was a trend.

    “I busted up after that event, seven years ago,” he told Seinfeld in an episode of the latter’s new Web series, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”

    Responded Seinfeld: “That’s up to you, to say: ‘I’ve been carrying this bag long enough. I’m going to put it down,’ ” adding later: “I hope that you do consider using your instrument again, because it’s the most beautiful instrument I’ve ever seen.”

    This could be interesting although I doubt I watch it.As for the reference to comedians in cars getting coffee, both the richards and Larry David episodes are amazing.

    Seinfeld, as arrogant as he has become, does a good job with the show. I have found it to be very entertaining.
