 n.— «Jerry’s new flick is the story of a college-graduate bee who wants to move out of the hive and do something different. He ends up suing producers who steal honey. Seinfeld will premiere some 20 “mini-tainments,” as he calls them, on NBC this fall—humorous, behind-the-scenes mockumentaries.» —“Seinfeld cooks with honey at film fest” by Stephen Schaefer Boston Herald (Massachusetts) May 18, 2007.
