Jason Alexander may be heading back to TV

Image Credit: Michael Loccisano/Getty ImagesJason Alexander may be heading back to network television. CBS has ordered an hour-long series, which Alexander would executive produce as well as star in, about a “former TV star who’s down on his luck and winds up joining his ex-wife’s detective agency. Once there, the character reinvents himself as an investigator with a penchant for disguise,” according to Variety. Recall that Julia Louis-Dreyfus has signed on for an HBO political show. It’s almost like an awesome turn on Curb Your Enthusiasm has wonderful lasting effects!

I’m of the firm belief that George Costanza is one of the all-time most tragic figures in American television, and while I don’t know that I’m desperate for another goofy detective series, I do love seeing Alexander play down-and-out. My spidey senses are telling me that the real make-it-or-break-it ingredient for the series will be the casting of Alexander’s ex. Chemistry, you guys. Chemistry.

So go ahead and sit in the casting director’s chair, PopWatchers. Who would you want to see play opposite Alexander?
