According to ‘Variety’, the film is set in 1963 Michigan, and is described as “a tale of ambition, betrayal, sugar, and menacing milkmen.” Inspired by a bit in Seinfeld’s latest stand-up special ’23 Hours to Kill’, the silly story unfolds as sworn cereal rivals Kellogg’s and Post race to create a pastry that will change the face of breakfast forever.

The stacked call sheet also includes Jack McBrayer, Tom Lennon, Adrian Martinez, Bobby Moynihan, Max Greenfield, Christian Slater and Sarah Cooper.

‘Variety’ further states that Netflix has not clarified who any of the actors will be playing in ‘Unfrosted: The Pop-Tart Story’, which is expected to begin production sometime in 2022. Spike Feresten, Andy Robin and Barry Marder are writing the screenplay with Seinfeld. The film will be produced by Seinfeld, Feresten and Beau Bauman. Executive producers include Cherylanne Martin, Robin and Marder.

Seinfeld has collaborated with Netflix on his interview series ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ as well as his latest comedy specials, 2020’s ’23 Hours to Kill’ and 2017’s ‘Jerry Before Seinfeld’. Netflix also recently landed worldwide rights to all 180 episodes of ‘Seinfeld’.

Legendary stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld was previously in the news when he praised Vir Das in front of Hollywood actor and comic star Chris Rock, and the Indian comedian found it “cool”.

In a recent interview, Rock said that the comedy scene is far diverse, taking in more styles and voices, than ever before. Seinfeld responded saying: “I saw this Indian guy named Vir Das on a Netflix promo on Instagram. Did you see where he does part of the act in Hindi and part of it in English? (He is) a really funny guy. That’s a great thing that Netflix does – Bring all these people to us.”

Thrilled by the conversation, Vir Das tweeted: “If you’re a comedy fan like me, you understand how cool this is. When Jerry Seinfeld mentions you to Chris Rock in a magazine, it’s a pretty special day.”

Vir Das has three comedy specials streaming on the platform right now — “Abroad Understanding”, “Losing It” and “Vir Das For India”.
