Seinfeld's new show about nothing

AS A new wave of big names enter the growing field of web series, leave it to Larry David to keep enthusiasm in check.

"I wouldn't say I'm excited, but I'm looking forward to it," David says at the start of Jerry Seinfeld's new series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

The conceit of the show is exceptionally simple: Seinfeld picks up a comedian friend in one of his personal vintage cars, and they get some coffee.

Having achieved these meager tasks, David, the co-creator of Seinfeld, appropriately concludes: "You have finally done the show about nothing."

In the latest batch of notable series to launch online, long-harboured ambitions find digital outlets: Seinfeld does nothing; Tom Hanks plays a hero; Larry King keeps his suspenders in action.
