Jerry Seinfeld has been accused of stealing his hit show Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee from a man who allegedly pitched him the idea 16 years ago.
Producer Christian Charles claims he approached Jerry with the idea for the show that was to become his new Netflix hit in 2002 – and he teamed up with the comic to shoot a pilot in 2011.
But, according to documents obtained by TMZ, the former Seinfeld star decided to go at it alone – and ditched Charles.
He claims Jerry is now earning $750,000-per-episode he wants a credit and financial compensation.
In the show, Seinfeld picks up a different comedian or celebrity every episode, takes them for a spin in a classic car, and then treats them to coffee at a nearby diner, while cracking jokes and quizzing his guest about his or her life and career.
Guests on the show, which previously aired on online network Crackle, have included Barack Obama, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Steve Harvey, Jim Carrey, Kristen Wiig, and Bill Burr.
