The Soup Nazi to Star in New Reality TV Show?

Larry Thomas starred in one of the most famous episodes of Seinfeld, season seven’s “The Soup Nazi.” His irrational behavior and dedication to his soup made the Soup Nazi both your enemy and had you gain respect for his passion. His tart-tongued street food vendor begat the phrase “No Soup for You!” and also earned Thomas an Emmy.

Now, with the help of Naples film and production company ITZ Studios, “The Soup Nazi” hopes to launch a new reality TV show that is centered around his passion for food.

And, of course, the title of the show would be No Soup for You!

Chuck Ardezzone, founder of Naples-based ITZ Studios, promises “a really cool show,” although a network production deal has yet to be signed. He envisions No Soup for You! as a combination cooking show and chat show.

Larry Thomas has used the “Soup Nazi” character to promote soup kitchens for the homeless and recently released a book Confessions of a Soup Nazi: An Adventure in Acting and Cooking.

ITZ Studios is still shopping No Soup for You! to major networks, although Ardezzone revealed interest from Food Network, among others.

The next step for No Soup for You! could either be a small or a large sized order for the shows episodes.
