AMC, meanwhile, has only just begun to fund scripted comedy, while Netflix has high hopes, but no confirmed plans, for future seasons of Arrested Development. HBO’s Veep and Silicon Valley stand out as the most likely rivals for new Yahoo! comedy programming, though Sony’s Crackle has dipped its toe in the genre with Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee."
