Jerry Seinfeld apologizes for allegedly biting from Carpool Series Idea

Published

NETFLIX

Almost nothing producers in Hollywood create stems from an original idea, so they find content worth imitating with optimism of not getting caught.

On this week’s chopping block is veteran actor Jerry Seinfeld who’s was called out over his new Netflix streaming series.

The star of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” was recently slammed by Robert Llewellyn for allegedly copying his original show concept of chatting with influential figures while riding around in vehicles.

“These are all real shows!” Seinfeld says in a tweet. “And we are proud that others have taken notice of our style and have been inspired by it. The only comment we would like to make is: If you’re going to knock us off, get it right!”

Robert Llewellyn tweeted Wednesday that his “Carpool” show predates “Comedians in Cars,” having run on the Internet in 2009 and aired on TV in 2010-11.

Just days after proudly promoting his latest gig, Seinfeld took to Twitter to apologize to the British actor who hosted a chat-in-cars show three years before Seinfeld’s show premiered. “Apology to Robert Llewelyn Car Pool. Had not heard of it,” he wrote.

“That’s very kind of you sir,” Llewellyn replied. “I’ve moved on since the Carpool days but the series is still up on YouTube.”

NiteLite Pictures’ Harry Lowell and Ari Wilhelm

In response to a real demand from its broadcast, Web and distribution partners, as well as charities seeking support, award-winning, Los Angeles-based production company NiteLite Pictures has unveiled the Coronavirus Positivity Initiative, a worldwide effort to create programming that promotes togetherness, community and celebrates the human spirit during the global lockdown.  

Under the banner of the Coronavirus Positivity Initiative, the company is launching a series of programs that spotlight the heroes on the front lines, inspiring individuals from around the world, and comedy shows that take a lighter look at life during the pandemic. All the programs will feature real people from around the globe in an effort to help bring audiences closer together.  

“This is truly a unique time in the world’s history,” comments NiteLite producer Ari Wilhelm.  

“While everyone is doing their part to help keep family and communities safe, there is a need for entertainment content like never before, and specifically relevant, uplifting content that is understanding and respectful of the situation we are all living.”

NiteLite is working closely on the initiative with its UK sales agent Meredith Coral of Lost Art Television to develop programming content tailored to viewing audiences and requested by broadcasters and media platforms during this time.

“NiteLite is responding to broadcasters’ needs and the audiences desires for not only new content, but relevant content to their current situation,” adds NiteLite executive producer Harry Lowell.

“We’re developing heartwarming and comedy programming  that connects to people’s lives during this new norm, while devising production solutions to deliver shows in a matter of days, not months, both remotely and safely.”

The entertainment hub will produce “self quarantine-based” content designed to resonate and connect to audiences. The company’s homebound, creative teams are currently developing engaging programming that can be produced quickly and remotely, while under stay at home orders.
