Tom Papa is NBC's 'Marriage Ref'

Reality series produced by Jerry Seinfeld

Jerry Seinfeld has found his "Marriage Ref."

Comedian Tom Papa will star in NBC's reality series, where he will make judgment calls about marital disputes.

In each episode of the Seinfeld-produced series, couples present their case to a panel of comedians and celebrities. The panel then tries to convince the Ref which spouse is correct.

Papa has served as Seinfeld's opening act on tour, has had two stand-up specials on Comedy Central and is onscreen in "The Informant!"

"Marriage Ref" enters production in January and marks Seinfeld's return to the network that made him a household name, though his role will primarily be behind the camera.
