Michael Richards Makes TV Return In Kirstie Alley & Rhea Perlman TV Pilot

Kramer is back!

Former “Seinfeld” star Michael Richards is making his return to the small screen opposite Kirstie Alley and Rhea Perlman in “Giant Baby,” a pilot for TV Land, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The story revolves around a Broadway star, played by Kirstie, who reconnects with her biological son after his adopted mother dies.

Michael will play the limo driver, while Rhea will star as the actress’ assistant. Gilles Marini has also reportedly signed on to guest star as the star’s chef.

This marks Richards’ first potential regular TV job since his November 2006 racially charged rant at Hollywood’s Laugh Factory.

The 63-year-old actor has appeared on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and Jerry Seinfeld’s web series, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” since ending his nine season run of the hit NBC sitcom in 1998.
