Modern Seinfeld Twitter Parody Lands Writer Job on New Fox Sitcom

By: Josh Wolford - August 2, 2013

Who says being funny on Twitter won’t get you anywhere.

Comedian and writer Jack Moore has just landed a job writing on a new Fox sitcom, and he did so based partially on the strength of his Twitter side-project, Modern Seinfeld.

If you don’t follow @SeinfeldToday on Twitter, you’re doing something wrong. It’s one of the most delightful parody accounts out there. The account, which was launched back in December of 2012, tweets out possible Seinfeld plotlines – if the show was in production today.

Here are some gems:

See? Good stuff. The account has over 620,000 followers.

According to THR, Moore has been hired to write for Us & Them, a new sitcom set to air on Fox this fall.

The premise of the show involves a couple who have been dating online for a few months. When they finally decide to meet in person, their respective families attempt to interfere with the relationship. The show is based on a British series called Gavin & Stacey, and stars Jason Ritter and Alexis Bledel.

“I was basically pitching storylines, which is a huge part of being on a writing staff. Here’s 400 [of them] that illustrated a skill set,” Moore told THR in referencing how his Twitter alter-ego helped him land the job.
