Jerry Seinfeld stars in this television comedy series as himself, a comedian. The premise of this sitcom is Jerry and his friends going through everyday life, discussing various quirky situations, to which we can all relate (especially if we live in New York City). The eccentric personalities of the offbeat characters who make up Jerry's social circle contribute to the fun.

Episode 8.22 was inspired by true events. Writer Alec Berg
had a crush on actress Dylan Tays
, who plays Jerry's blonde girlfriend in episode 7.19, Seinfeld: The Calzone
(1996). Over the phone, Berg convinced Tays to go to the Oscars with him. (He was writing jokes for the ceremony one year.) Unfortunately, when he went to pick her up he found out she had a boyfriend, a photographer who wasn't too thrilled to see him. Tays had neglected to tell him about that on the phone. The incident inspired a story line in the season eight finale, Seinfeld: The Summer of George
(1997). See more
You will notice that on external shots of Jerry's building there are insect screens on the windows. However, these are never evident whenever any of the cast occasionally lean out the window whilst the scene is being shot from inside Jerry's apartment. See more
I hear that all the time.
That I'm gay. People think I'm gay.
People ask me that about you all the time.
Yeah, because I'm thin, I'm single, and I'm neat.
Guess that leaves me in the clear...
The series does not have an opening credits sequence. Instead, the lead actor credits play out over a scene. Now commonplace in sitcoms and drama series, this was considered a novelty in 1990 and sparked a debate over the future of opening credits in TV series. See more
In the episode "The Summer Of George" some scenes were edited for TV screening but were aired in full in foreign countries during reruns. Extra footage included more dialogue between George and a shop assistant with regard to party invitations, Jerry and his girlfriend discussing who would look after her shopping the coffee shop and a couple more lines between George and Jerry near the end of the episode as George lies in a hospital bed.
