Jerry Seinfeld has taken a massive step forward in his upcoming directorial debut with the announcement of the all-star cast of Unfrosted: The Pop-Tart Story.

As previously reported, the film is an adaptation of one of Seinfeld’s most popular jokes. Back in June 2021, Seinfeld told Deadline, “Stuck at home watching endless sad faces on TV, I thought this would be a good time to make something based on pure silliness. So, we took my Pop-Tart stand-up bit from my last Netflix special and exploded it into a giant, crazy comedy movie.”

Unfrosted: The Pop-Tart Story will be a Netflix exclusive, which is an extension of the sitcom legends current relationship with the streaming giant. Netflix is already home to a number of Seinfeld properties, including Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, two stand-up specials (Jerry Before Seinfeld and 23 Hours to Kill) and, of course, all 180 episodes of Seinfeld.

Per Netflix, the logline of the film reads, “Michigan, 1963. Kellogg’s and Post, sworn cereal rivals, race to create a pastry that will change the face of breakfast forever. A tale of ambition, betrayal, sugar, and menacing milkmen, ‘Unfrosted’ stars writer/director Jerry Seinfeld.”
