Seinfeld star Michael Richards is returning to television in his first regular series role after more than a decade.

Richards is set to star in TV Land's Giant Baby, opposite Kirstie Alley and Rhea Perlman, Deadline reports. Richards will play a limo driver to Broadway star Madison Banks (played by Alley), whose life is upturned when her long-lost son looks to reconnect with her after the death of his adopted mother. Perlman will play Madison's assistant/best friend, while Sex and the City: The Movie star Gilles Marini is also set to guest star in the pilot episode and has the potential to play a recurring role.

Richards is best known for playing the eccentric Kramer on Seinfeld, a role for which he won three Emmys for. Since the beloved show left the air in 1998, his television credits include guest starring on Curb Your Enthusiasm and starring in NBC's short-lived The Michael Richards Show in 2000.
