Jerry Seinfeld’s directorial debut Unfrosted is now streaming on Netflix. It features an incredible cast that includes Hugh Grant, Melissa McCarthy, and Jim Gaffigan. According to Grant, Seinfeld was constantly making edits to the dialogue and was focused on the lines first and foremost.

“He’s quite relaxed, really. He is amazingly relaxed. What he cares about is the words. His main focus — he’s sitting there with his co-writer, endlessly adjusting the script,” Grant told ComingSoon of Jerry Seinfeld as a director.

“I just did an interview with him earlier today — he says himself, he’s not really interested in the acting and not particularly interested in the directing. The cameras point at the actors, and then you cut it together. That’s his attitude. But what he cares about is, ‘Are the lines funny?'”

What is Unfrosted about?

“Michigan, 1963. Kellogg’s and Post, sworn cereal rivals, race to create a pastry that will change the face of breakfast,” reads the film‘s synopsis. “A tale of ambition, betrayal, sugar, and menacing milkmen, Unfrosted stars Jerry Seinfeld in his directorial debut.”

Seinfeld co-wrote the script for Unfrosted with Spike Feresten, Andy Robin, and Barry Marder. Seinfeld and Feresten also produce the movie alongside Beau Bauman.

Unfrosted also stars Amy Schumer, Max Greenfield, Christian Slater, Sarah Cooper, Bill Burr, Daniel Levy, James Marsden, Jack McBrayer, Thomas Lennon, Bobby Moynihan, Adrian Martinez, Fred Armisen, and more.
