The NBC executives that approach Bania are named Jay Chermack and Stu Crespi. This is a reference to the two NBC execs that worked with Jerry and George throughout season 4 on their pilot, "Jerry." They first appear in "The Pitch," and are named Stu Chermack and Jay Crespi. This further exemplifies Bania's riding of Jerry's coattails during this episode. See more
