The Pilot


Episode Info

The pilot for "Jerry," the show about "nothing" created by Jerry and George is finally a go, so they begin casting actors for the roles of Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer. After an actor nails the audition for the part of Kramer, the real George becomes obsessed with the fact that a box of raisins turned up missing immediately after the actor left. And speaking of obsession, the president of NBC suddenly has an undying crush on Elaine, who herself is bent on proving that the owner of Monk's Diner only hires large-breasted women. Mariska Hargitay of ER and Law & Order: SVU and Jeremy Piven guest star. First airing May 20, 1993, "The Pilot, Part 1" was originally the first half of the one-hour, fourth-season ender. The episode was later split in two for syndication.
