Crackle Adds New Comedy Series 'Tightrope' Produced by Bryan Cranston

On top of their recent multiple-season renewal of Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Deadline reports that Sony's video site Crackle has also added a comedy with Bryan Cranston serving as executive producer. Titled Tightrope, the series will "replace a character from a classic detective series with a modern-day actor" and "juxtaposes the modern character with irreverent comic sensibilities and also with older characters from another era to reshape the stories into a contemporary comedy." No cast or release date has been announced yet for Tightrope, but the idea of Bryan Cranston infusing humor into old detective shows sounds very promising.

Watch Sarah Silverman on the Season Premiere of Jerry Seinfeld's 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee'

The second season of Jerry Seinfeld's web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee debuted this week with Sarah Silverman, the show's first female guest, appearing in the premiere. Chris Rock, Don Rickles, Seth Meyers, and other people are slated to appear in the rest of the 24-episode season.

'Joe Dirt 2' Is a Real Thing That Is Happening

Don't worry, the Joe Dirt franchise is still alive and breathing. Crackle, Sony's digital network and studio, announced today that they'll be producing a sequel to the 2001 David Spade movie. The first film only grossed $27 million, but Spade cited the movie's high DVD sales at Wal-Mart (seriously) when he first started talking about a sequel in 2006. The sequel didn't materialize and Spade sold a Joe Dirt animated series to TBS in 2010. The project didn't move forward, but now Spade is prepping it as a digital movie for Crackle, to be released online streaming. A rep from Crackle said today that the Joe [...]

Crackle and Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee sponsor Acura announced today that they've renewed the popular Jerry Seinfeld web series for four more seasons. The order for seasons six through nine are in addition to the already added fourth and fifth seasons, assuring that Seinfeld will get to show off his fancy cars for a total of at least six more seasons online.

Joshua Malina, Michael Ian Black, and Michael Panes Hit The Road in Backwash

Backwash is a new web series written and produced by Joshua Malina, of Sports Night and The West Wing fame, and directed by Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle’s Danny Leiner. It stars a who's-who from the comedy world: Michael Ian Black, Jon Hamm, Sarah Silverman, Hank Azaria, Fred Willard and on and on. It's an ambitious one, too, with top-notch production values and some episodes pushing 8 minutes, which is pretty long for web videos. I haven't seen it all yet, but this feels a bit more like a serialized movie than a standard web series.

The series is a crazy slapstick roadtrip adventure, featuring Malina, [...]

Here's the season two finale of Jerry Seinfeld's web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, featuring Chris Rock. It's pretty great to see these two veteran standups talk to each other. It's like that HBO special from a couple years back where the two of them talk about standup with Louis C.K. and Ricky Gervais, only (unfortunately) Louis C.K. isn't there and (fortunately) Ricky Gervais isn't either.
