London, Feb 26 (IANS) Beloved Hollywood funnyman Jerry Seinfeld is returning to the small-screen after 11 years - as a marriage counsellor.
The comic, who wrote and starred in long running sitcom “Seinfeld”, is planning a new show for America’s NBC network entitled “The Marriage Ref”, reports contactmusic.com.
The series, co-created with Oprah Winfrey’s executive producer Ellen Rakieten, will feature celebrities talking about the highs and lows of married life but Seinfeld is adamant the show will focus on the amusing aspects of being husband and wife.
“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,” he said.
