Seinfeld has been recut and reborn as a Lifetime movie. And the main character is one George Costanza, who seems to have it all, before he is struck down by tragedy. The most remarkably hilarious thing about this faux Lifetime trailer, beyond the fact that you can make Seinfeld seem dramatic when you remove studio audience laughter, is that George appears to be a blessed, lucky individual.

Yes, they even found ways to make George seem like he cares about love, women and children. Plus his ambitions to do the opposite of what he normally does are driven by a desire to lead a purposeful life, like a phoenix rising from the ashes. Notably absent from the engagement scene is Jerry's confession that he broke up with the woman he was dating because she eats her peas one at a time.
