Jerry Seinfeld stars in this television comedy series as himself, a comedian. The premise of this sitcom is Jerry and his friends going through everyday life, discussing various quirky situations, to which we can all relate (especially if we live in New York City). The eccentric personalities of the offbeat characters who make up Jerry's social circle contribute to the fun.

The series does not have an opening credits sequence. Instead, the lead actor credits play out over a scene. Now commonplace in sitcoms and drama series, this was considered a novelty in 1990 and sparked a debate over the future of opening credits in TV series. See more
In the episode "The Summer Of George" some scenes were edited for TV screening but were aired in full in foreign countries during reruns. Extra footage included more dialogue between George and a shop assistant with regard to party invitations, Jerry and his girlfriend discussing who would look after her shopping the coffee shop and a couple more lines between George and Jerry near the end of the episode as George lies in a hospital bed.
