Kramer cast in Gi­ant sit­com

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY TV -

star Michael Richards has been cast in pi­lot for a prospec­tive new sit­com. The se­ries, Gi­ant Baby, also would fea­ture Cheers alums Kirstie Al­ley and Rhea Perlman. In­dus­try web­site TV Land re­ports the pi­lot will be taped next week. Al­ley plays Broad­way star Mad­die Banks. Richards plays her limo driver. Perlman plays her as­sis­tant. This would be Richards’s first reg­u­lar se­ries role since his short-lived sit­com aired in 2000 on the US net­work NBC. Be­fore that, he played Jerry Se­in­feld’s kookie neigh­bour Cosmo Kramer on the wildly pop­u­lar Se­in­feld se­ries. In the mean­time, Richards per­formed as a stand-up co­me­dian. He lost his tem­per while be­ing heck­led at a club in 2006 and was caught on tape shout­ing the N-word. He later apol­o­gised.

Coming in 2013.
