The Marriage Ref

About the Show

Jerry Seinfeld is back and in the producer's chair for an all-new and improved second season of "The Marriage Ref."

In this funny and revealing comedy panel series, real-life married couples take center stage as their quirky, funny and relatable disputes are explored, examined - and ultimately judged. For the sophomore run of "The Marriage Ref," couples will appear in-studio and face a panel of "experts" composed of top celebrities and comedians who will weigh in and decide which spouse is right. The goal is to give couples something they have always wanted but have never had - a clear winner.

At the end of each episode, the studio audience will vote to make one of the winners "The Rightest of the Right." These winners will receive $25,000 and their very own billboards, in their hometowns, declaring they are right.

Comedian Tom Papa ("The New Adventures of Old Christine," "The Informant!") is back in the center of the action where he serves as the host and the "ref." Papa was personally chosen by Seinfeld for this role.

"The Marriage Ref" is produced by Seinfeld's Columbus 81 Productions. Seinfeld serves as Executive Producer, and Page Hurwitz ("Last Comic Standing") and Javier Winnik ("Last Comic Standing") are the Co-Producers. International distribution is by Endemol.
