A former producer is suing Jerry Seinfeld over the creative origins of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. TMZ reports that Christian Charles is claiming he originally pitched the show to Seinfeld in 2002, and the comic demurred until 2011, which is when they shot a pilot. Things went sour, the lawsuit alleges, after Charles wanted to be compensated as if he had ownership interest in the show. Accordingly, the plaintiff wants a “created by” credit and financial remuneration. In a statement to TMZ, Jerry's lawyer, Orin Snyder, said, "This lawsuit is delusional. Jerry independently created Comedians in Cars and Mr. Charles only concocted this claim after the show became a commercial success. We are confident that this shakedown lawsuit will go nowhere."
