Jason Alexander is aware of media corporations are lining up to fall a gold mine for the rights to air “Seinfeld” reruns, nonetheless he’s now not too interested in one of the best sale imprint … for one very correct reason.
We ran into George Costanza at LAX and requested him about the loopy bidding battle that is speculated to be going down in 2020 after “Seinfeld” leaves Hulu and hits the initiate market. Estimates are the streaming rights will lag for upwards of 1/2 a BILLION bucks!
Jason — who performed Costanza for nearly 10 years sooner than the enduring sitcom went off the air in 1998 — says he can now not take into consideration of us are mild observing their mark about nothing in 2019. Nonetheless, he loves the reality folk are discovering it anew, and getting some (diminutive) kicks out of it.
Our photog asks if Jason’s gonna see any of that cash when the brand new deal is lastly completed strategy next December. You gotta see his response, because he’s clearly now not the least bit eager. But, is he disappointed? Correct look for.
Jason, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards famously did NOT procure a lower of the syndication rights. It is one of the most explanations the mark came to an end. However, they did negotiate advantageous lump sum funds, and naturally, they procure mailbox cash (Screen Actors Guild royalties) as long as the mark retains airing.
As for the save Jason would savor to “Seinfeld” bound after a 5-Twelve months bustle on Hulu, he says he does now not in actuality care … can also the appropriate conglomerate retract. Traditional apathetic George.
