Netflix has reportedly inked Jerry Seinfeld for a second original stand-up comedy special, “Jerry Seinfeld: 23 Hours to Kill,” launching on May 5.
The deal follows a 2017 agreement affording Netflix with original stand-up special, “Jerry Before Seinfeld,” followed by streaming rights to original series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” which originated for nine seasons on Crackle before moving to Netflix in 2019.
Netflix also gets exclusive rights to “Seinfeld” beginning in 2021.
Seinfeld remains a headline act in Netflix’s previously-announced “Netflix is a Joke Fest” live comedy event in Los Angeles, which has been postponed from its original April 27 to May 3 dates.
