Over the course of its six episodes, season seven will also feature Will Ferrell, Steve Martin, Gary Shandling, Kathleen Madigan, and Sebastian Maniscalco, along with a host of interesting automobiles. Seinfeld and his guests will go cruising and stop for coffee, plus other spontaneous side trips. The promo shows Ferrell and Seinfeld playing at a park as well as an incident in which a car appears to have broken down.
To pick up the president, Seinfeld drove a 1963 Corvette Stingray Split Window Coupe, according to Deadline. The episode was filmed at famous first house earlier in December, so it sounds like the comedian and the commander-in-chief may not have actually left 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. If that’s the case, it makes sense; taking the show on the road would presumably be a Secret Service nightmare.
While Seinfeld and his show are undeniably a draw, the fact that Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee features the likes of the POTUS is indicative of the fact that Crackle, the Sony-owned streamer that hosts the show, is getting bigger. (The service is also home to Dennis Quaid’s The Art of More, a scripted series renewed for its second season earlier this month.) As much as Obama has been hitting the TV circuit more frequently as his final term winds down, his appearances have typically been on major networks, such as HBO’s Vice prison special, which aired in September, and his recent episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls on NBC.
