Jerry Seinfeld’s hit show about comedians, coffee and cars wasn’t his idea at all … according to the producer who’s now suing. Christian Charles says he pitched a show idea to Jerry in 2002, and claims it’s the basis for “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” In his lawsuit, Charles says Jerry turned him down, initially, saying he wasn’t interested in doing the show.
Jerry’s attorney, Orin Snyder, said in a statement, “This lawsuit is delusional. Jerry independently created ‘Comedians in Cars’ and Mr. Charles only concocted this claim after the show became a commercial success. We are confident that this shakedown lawsuit will go nowhere.”
