According to Entertainment Weekly, Seinfeld opened up about his sitcom stating, ''Larry and I are enormously grateful to Netflix for taking this chance on us. It takes a lot of guts to trust two schmucks who literally had zero experience in television when we made this thing.''
He also admitted getting carried away while making the show as they did not realize how many episodes they ended up making. Concluding his statement, he said, ''But worth all the work if people like it. Crazy project.''
