During the fourth season of Seinfeld, the network was interested in giving Jerry a series. After a long negotiation, the television pilot Jerry aired. However, it was cancelled after the first episode. Later, NBC was interested in making a pilot for Kenny Bania. In “The Finale”, NBC ordered a full season of Jerry, but when the four friends went to jail, the series never came to be.
Fictional Susan Ross worked for and was fired by NBC.
- NBC cancelling Jerry is a reference to how the real NBC nearly cancelled Seinfeld after the pilot, The Seinfeld Chronicles.
