You may have heard the buzz earlier this month when Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander were spotted going into Tom’s Restaurant—the famous group hangout during Seinfeld’s run. Blinds were shut, the restaurant was closed, and an aura of mystery surrounded the whole scene. Were they filming a Super Bowl ad? (Seinfeld says no.)

On the Boomer & Carton radio show on New York’s WFAN, he admitted Alexander was playing his George character and that other Seinfeld characters were involved in the project. So what is the project? Seinfeld used words like “short-ish form” and “one-and-done,” and hinted it will be available “very soon.” He also made it clear that Larry David was involved in some capacity.
