( - Jerry Seinfeld's highly anticipated"secret project"was unveiled onSuper Bowl Sunday, and it's episode of his Web seriesComedians in Cars Getting CoffeeentitledThe Over-Cheerin which he reunites with two belovedSeinfeldcharacters -- George (Jason Alexander) and Newman the mailman (Wayne Knight), Jerry's longtime nemesis.

The 90-second promo for the six-minute Web video aired on Fox just beforeBruno Mars' halftime show. It features Seinfeld and Alexander seated in a booth atTom's RestaurantinManhattan(the stand-in for Monk'son the long-running NBC sitcom) discussing why George wasn't invited to this year's big Super Bowl party at "the Wassersteins." (It seems George over-cheered at their gathering two years ago when theNew York Giantswon the big game, then "availed himself of the toilet in their master bedroom.")

Newman shows up near the end, toting a box of danish for the Wassersteins' Super Bowl get-together.

In a statement released after the segment aired, Seinfeld explained the origins of the reunion project.

"Fox approached (Seinfeldco-creator) Larry (David) and me about doing some kind ofSeinfeldreunion for the halftime broadcast because of the New York connection," he said. "So we thought throwing Jerry, George and Newman into aComedians in Cars Getting Coffeewas a fun way to do it. Larry and I wrote the script in one sitting, just like old times, and working with him, Jason and Wayne was a total blast as it always was."
