Jerry Seinfield on returning to Television

comedians_in-cars-ricky-gervais-jerry-seinfieldHe’s been producing an online series called Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee which has been nominated for an Emmy and for some reason The Hollywood Reporter wanted to ask this:

Is there a scenario where you’d go back to TV?

Seinfeld: That’s what I feel like I’m doing. Except television frankly feels small compared to the world I’m in now. I’m in Australia, I’m in Norway, I’m in the U.K. And I was from day one. I’m doing the smallest possible show on the biggest possible network. This all feels like fresh air to me, and if you don’t seek fresh air as an artist, I’m not quite sure what [you’re doing]. … Look, I think every artist needs to make a certain choice at some point just for the money to know what that is, but you should learn from it. And I’ve done that, when the money was the major part of the decision to do something. [He declines comment on what those choices were for him.]

TV is not just broadcast any more.  A quick look at the nomination list there makes you realise that.
