"Sources tell PageSix.com that the 53-year-old comedian is in talks for a new series on his old net. The show is being pitched as "just like Curb Your Enthusiasm, but with Jerry, instead of Larry."

We guess it's better than a show about nothing!

The series, which is aiming for a June premiere, will be set in New York and will feature Jerry Seinfeld playing himself in an exaggerated reality. The whole thing is a bit confusing for us — if Larry David in Curb was what would have happened had Seinfeld been called Costanza, what happens when Seinfeld goes Curb?"

Well that didn't take long- we now have an official denial. Patrick Swayze should hire Seinfeld's peeps to do his PR:

"NEW YORK - Sorry, "Seinfeld" fans.

NBC and Jerry Seinfeld shot down a New York Post report Friday that the comic was in talks with the network about a new sitcom. The report, citing no sources, said Seinfeld would play himself in a New York series similar to "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

"There's nothing to it," said NBC spokeswoman Rebecca Marks.

Jerry wasn't that funny on that show. It was the cast around him that made Seinfield a GREAT show!

The straight man is actually the harder role. Abbot and Costello... Abbot got more money because he was the straight man.
