2007: Curb Your Enthusiasm

Curb Your Enthusiasm first premiered on HBO back in 2000, but the comedy show starring Larry David is still moving forward, with the tenth season expected to start production this year. The show originally started as a one-hour special in 1999, Larry David: Curb Your Enthusiasm. It was shot as a mockumentary, with characters aware of the cameras and crew around them. The special was expanded into the series, and the rest is history.

Curb Your Enthusiasm is about a fictionalized version of Larry David, and the series follows him in his day-to-day life as a semi-retired television writer living in Los Angeles. The show often featured celebrity guest stars playing fictionalized versions of themselves. Much like Seinfeld (which was co-created by David), the show was basically about nothing, but rather focused on the average American life, and the eccentricities of Larry David.

Curb Your Enthusiasm’s humor wasn’t for everyone, but it was acclaimed by critics throughout its original run. It has been nominated for 38 Primetime Emmy Awards, and won the 2002 Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy. Larry David has been nominated for several awards for his starring role, including five Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, and three Golden Globes for Best Actor – Musical or Comedy Series.
