Creating "Seinfeld"

Clip: Season 4 | 1m 27s

When Jerry Seinfeld sat down with friend and fellow comedian Larry David in 1989 to discuss plans for a sitcom, they knew they wanted to create a scenario that wasn’t too far from Jerry’s real life experience: a New York standup comedian who hung out with his friends doing a whole lot of nothing. "Seinfeld" was born.
