"Comedians," which is in its eighth season, has been the flagship series of Crackle, a Sony owned streaming network. The series breaks the mold of traditional talk shows with each episode varying in length and location, and Seinfeld poking fun of the show's overt auto product placements. Last season's celebrity guests ranged from Will Ferrell and Steve Martin, to President Obama.
"We are so deeply proud of the work Jerry and the team at Embassy Row have done to bring 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' to life and making the series part of the zeitgeist," Eric Berger, general manager of Crackle said in a statement. "The show allows us to see the very personal side of some of the best loved comedians and bold faced names and Crackle couldn't be more honored with this nomination."
While this is somewhat new territory for Crackle, it's not for Seinfeld, who is an executive producer on the series.
The comedian has been nominated 16 times, mostly for his role as an actor and creator on "Seinfeld." However, Seinfeld only won the Emmy once for Outstanding Comedy Series in 1993.
The 68th Annual Emmy Awards will air on Sunday, September 18, on ABC.
