TV LAND DEBUTS UNFLINCHING LARRY DAVID COMEDY, "CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM," ON FEBRUARY 16
New York, NY - February 14, 2013 - TV Land will premiere Larry David's hit HBO comedy series, "Curb Your Enthusiasm," kicking off with marathons on Saturday and Sunday, February 16th and 17th, from 11pm to 6am and Monday, February 18th from 11pm to 3am. The show will then settle into its regular timeslot of 2am ET/PT beginning Tuesday, February 19th, where it will air daily. TVLand.com will also stream full episodes of the show, and fans will be able to stay engaged with @tvland during the marathon to judge #awkward or #notawkward on their favorite Larry moments.
"Curb Your Enthusiasm" stars Larry David as himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his life. Shot in a vérité style and often featuring celebrities who play themselves, the episodes are improvised by the actors from a mere outline created by David. The series also stars Cheryl Hines ("Suburgatory") as David's wife Cheryl, Jeff Garlin ("Daddy Day Care") as David's manager Jeff and Susie Essman ("Keeping the Faith") as Jeff's wife Susie.
The series has been nominated for seven Primetime Emmy(R) Awards over the course of its run, and won a Golden Globe(R) Award for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy in 2003. "Curb Your Enthusiasm" has also received awards from the Writers Guild of America, Directors Guild of America, Producers Guild of America, NAACP Image Awards, the American Film Institute and Monte Carlo Television Festival, among others. "Curb Your Enthusiasm" is executive produced by Larry David, Jeff Garlin, Gavin Polone, Alec Berg, David Mandel, Jeff Schaffer, Tim Gibbons and Erin O'Malley.
