New Delhi, June 20 (IANS) American comedian-actor-writer Jerry Sienfeld has collaborated with production company Endemol for global distribution of a new comedy-reality series “The Marriage Ref”.
The show marks the iconic comedian’s first television series since “Seinfeld” ended its record-breaking nine-year run in May 1998. Seinfeld will be behind the camera for “The Marriage Ref”, which has been commissioned for a prime time run of six hour-long episodes on NBC in March 2010.

The show will feature opinionated celebrities, comedians, sports personalities and international stars, who will candidly comment, judge and offer different strategies to real-life couples in the midst of a marital dispute.

“This is not a therapy show, it’s a comedy show. After nine years of marriage I have discovered that the comedic potential of this subject is quite rich,” said Sienfeld.

The newly created comedy format will be exclusively distributed by Endemol outside of the US.
