jerryseinfeld-022609NBC today announced a new comedy-reality series created by comedian and producer Jerry Seinfeld.  Seinfeld has partnered with Ellen Rakieten, a 23-year veteran of The Oprah Winfrey Show for the project.

According to the press release, the new series, tentatively titled The Marriage Ref, will feature opinionated celebrities, comedians and sports stars who will candidly comment, judge and offer different strategies for real-life couples in the midst of a classic marital dispute.

The announcement was made by Ben Silverman, Co-Chairman, NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios, who promises that viewers “will love this highly relatable new comedy.”

Describing the new series, Seinfeld said, “This is not a therapy show, it’s a comedy show. After nine years of marriage I have discovered that the comedic potential of this subject is quite rich.”
