Seinfeld star Jason Alexander has been tapped to star in a new untitled comedy project for Adult Swim. Created by Adam Lustick of Silicon Valley and The Office, the series stars Alexander as an award-winning psychotherapist who goes off the deep end, engaging stranger and more bizarre therapy techniques with his patients. His unorthodox methods are not questioned by his peers, who are so reluctant to investigate due to the doctor’s such high-profile reputation. The live-action pilot was produced in-house though Alive and Kicking.
Alexander most recently starred opposite Jason Statham in the action flick Wild Card and appeared on the hilarious IFC series Comedy Bang! Bang! He’ll next appear in the comedy Larry Gaye: Renegade Male Flight Attendant and the musical Lucky Stiff. He’s also set to direct the romantic comedy A Nice Girl Like You.
