Welcome to the podcast that gives you all the lesser-known facts, trivia about your favorite shows or films. I'm your host Nikhil and this is OTTplay Now You know.

Today, we get to know more about Seinfeld, the iconic comedy 90s sitcom ‘about nothing’ created by standup legend Jerry Seinfeld and writer, co-creator Larry David. So let’s get started:

1.Before the show’s first telecast, Jerry Seinfeld asked Jason Alexander, who plays his best friend George on the show, whether he felt Seinfeld could actually be successful. Alexander shot back, saying that they "didn't have a chance" and even reasoned saying, “the audience for this show is me, and I don't watch TV.” Now, that’s classic George!

2. The ridiculous pirate shirt that Jerry was compelled to wear in the episode titled "The Puffy Shirt" was subsequently placed on display at the Smithsonian. Now, that’s a piece of American sartorial history we’d like to get a bite out of. 

3. The iconic line ‘these pretzels are making me thirsty’, which was assigned to Kramer when he bags a one-line role in a Woody Allen movie, was actually a tribute to Jeff Goldblum who had himself once featured in a one-scene role in another Woody Allen movie. In the six-second blink-and-miss scene from Annie Hall, Goldblum’s one line goes ‘I had lost by mantra’.

4. The show about nothing was one of only three series in American history to rank number one in the ratings for its entire final network season. And while the show did win 10 Primetime Emmys over the years for various categories, none of them went to the show’s lead star Jerry Seinfeld. 

Alright, that's some unknown facts and trivia about your favorite show Seinfeld for today, I shall be back gain with another podcast soon, until then its your host Nikhil outta here,
