Seinfeld 9/11 Spec Script Author Says Episode Should've Existed, but Couldn't Have

A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.

Writer and comedian Billy Domineau has stumbled into viral fame after posting a Seinfeld spec script that imagines how its well-known sitcom characters would have reacted to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The 44-page episode, titled "The Twin Towers," perfectly channels what Domineau sees as the "nihilistic, no-hugging-no-learning nature of the show" by focusing on how the core characters each react selfishly to the national catastrophe: Jerry develops a paranoia about dust, Elaine tries to break up with a survivor she's seeing, George masquerades as a first responder, and Kramer discovers his friend was one of the terrorists behind the attacks.

It's certainly a shocking subject matter, but one that Domineau says he was very careful to write about in a non-offensive way and contextualized in the voice of the show.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Recalls the 'Unbelievably Wrenching' Final Day on the Seinfeld Set

This article originally appeared on EW.com.

Almost 20 years after its final episode graced the small screen, Seinfeld still reigns as one of TV's biggest triumphs. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who won a myriad of honors for her performance as the smart but slightly neurotic Elaine Benes, reflects on the final days of the '90s sitcom in a new interview with PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle.

"At the time, I was ready to take a break. I had two very young kids. I had a baby and a 5-year-old. I wanted calm, and [to] just sort of hunker down at home," Louis-Dreyfus, 55, explained of Seinfeld's end after nine seasons.

"It was definitely bittersweet though. That night of our last show … was very emotional. The motto of our show was 'No hugging, no learning,' which is true. We were never trying to teach or [be] sentimental, but in fact, we were very sentimental," she said. "That night when we all bid goodbye was unbelievably wrenching."

Millions of viewers still love to revisit his classic '90s sitcom Seinfeld, but Jerry Seinfeld says you won't find TV marathons taking place at his house.

"You know what's funny? We don't watch TV anymore," the comedian, 61, told PEOPLE Monday at the 15th-anniversary celebration for wife Jessica's charity, Baby Buggy.

"I think when people watch TV they don't see each other as much," he explains. "But we don't turn on the TV. Only if it's sports and only baseball. We kind of like to sit in the bedroom at night and catch up on everything – it's nice."
