Seinfeld's Michael Richards To Make TV Return?

What better time to capitalize on the return to the limelight of Seinfeld (well, one poll voted it the best American sitcom ever anyway) than to plot a return to television? That’s exactly what Michael Richards is doing, with The Hollywood Reporter, err, reporting that we could be seeing him on American TV screens again quite soon!

Richard is apparently being tapped-up to co-star opposite Cheers duo Kirstie Alley and Rhea Perlman in TV Land’s Giant Baby. Sounds pretty promising to us, though we do hope it doesn’t descend into the sort of comfortably nostalgic comedy that can occur when such a cast are assembled. Anyway, Giant Baby apparently has been created by Marco Pennette and revolves around Broadway star Madison Banks who reconnects with her long-lost son after the death of his adopted mother. Perlman’s down to play Banks (Alley) best friend whilst Richards will be doing a turn as her limo driver. Again, sounds alright really doesn’t it.

There is a somewhat serious reason as to why Richards hasn’t been seen regularly on TV screens of late; back in 2006 he responded to a heckler during a stand-up routine at Laugh Factory with a racially tinged rant that placed him in trouble and damaged his reputation. Could this role provide some sort of redemption? Only time will tell.
