(Newser) – A new Jerry Seinfeld series is in the works at NBC, says Page Six. The comedian, 53, is in talks with his former network about a show that’s being pitched as “just like Curb Your Enthusiasm, but with Jerry, instead of Larry.” Once again, Seinfeld will play himself in New York in “an exaggerated reality,” writes the Page Six staff.

Given that Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm is sort of what Seinfeld  would have been like if it was called Costanza, Page Six notes, Seinfeld starring in his take on Curb could make things pretty confusing. But all will be revealed in June, when the show about something is expected to air.
