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.
