Curb Your Enthusiasm subject of new podcast
Curb Your Enthusiasm isn’t just coming back — it’s also getting a podcast.
Writer James Andrew Miller is launching a new podcast titled Origins that will explore the idea of beginnings, whether it’s a film or a human relationship or, in the first chapter’s case, a TV show.
The Curb Your Enthusiasm chapter will consist of five parts featuring interviews with more than a dozen people associated with the HBO show, including Larry David, Cheryl Hines, Susie Essman, and Ted Danson. According to a press release, “listeners will hear first-hand accounts of how the show was created, how it evolved, and how it changed the lives of everyone involved.”
The Emmy-winning comedy, created by and starring David, premiered in 2000 and ran for eight seasons. It was recently announced that it’s coming back for a ninth season that will debut Oct. 1 on HBO.
“Curb is one of my favorite TV shows of all time, and Larry David is a brilliant contributor to our culture,” Miller said in a statement. “Listeners will be able to join me as we examine the uniquely creative minds of Larry David and his colleagues to discover what really happened in those early days of this groundbreaking comedy show.”
The podcast premieres Sept. 6. Hear a preview here.
