30 years since the premiere of "Seinfeld" on television
Seinfeld is an emblematic TV series, which tells the story of a group of friends who live in New York, who usually live totally crazy and quite comic adventures. This sitcom is characterized by its black and irreverent humor that managed to captivate everyone.
The reality is that Seinfeld was not a success from the beginning like the vast majority of famous series. Its pilot chapter was a total failure causing NBC to decide to cancel it.
Even so, one of the executives of this network, named Rick Ludwin, managed to get NBC to support the project and give the series a second chance. In this way, the first season of "Seinfeld" was released, which became an immediate success until the end of it.
The final episode of "Seinfeld" was seen by more than 76 million people, a number that very few series have managed to exceed. Therefore, it is a clear example that a possible failure can become the opposite.
Currently, this sitcom has become a cult series around the world and is listed as one of the best TV series in history. In this way, it saves its place among those series that never get old or get boring, entertaining as the legendary series "Friends" and "The Simpsons".
The actors of this famous series were accompanied by the success of it throughout their career. In this way, Julia Louis-Dreyfus managed to play leading roles in such emblematic series as "Veep" and "The New Adventures of Old Christine".
For his part, Jerry Seinfeld starred in the famous animated movie "Bee Movie", and currently stars in the famous Netflix series "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee".
