It’s being reported that Jerry Seinfeld has teamed with longtime Oprah producer Ellen Rakieten to bring a reality comedy show about marriage to NBC, possibly as soon as the fall.

The hour-long episodes will introduce the couples through filmed reports and show them fighting. A panel of celebrity guests will weigh in to offer advice and observations before the final arbiter, a “ref” who hasn’t been selected yet, will settle things.

Jerry said that concept came from experiences in his own life and that the show – which will be comedic, not therapeutic – will be highly ‘relatable.’ Jerry further stated that he doesn’t intend to do any work in front of the camera but will do narration/voice-over work for the show.

The show is tentatively titled, “The Marriage Ref.”
