After seven seasons in sunny Los Angeles, celebrity schlemiel Larry David is bringing his award-winning HBO series, “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” home to New York. HBO confirmed a New York Post story stating that a “majority” of the show’s 10 episodes will be shot in the city where David grew up, and where his career-making sitcom, “Seinfeld,” was set.
The eighth season of “Curb,” a mockumentary-style adaptation of David’s life, will begin production in July. No reasons for the move east have been released. The news was revealed by Susie Essman, who plays the vulgar wife of David’s agent, and who was a high school friend of the Forward’s editor Jane Eisner.
“They all live in L.A.,” Essman, a New Yorker, told the Post about the cast, “and for seven seasons, I’ve been schlepping out there. Now I get to sleep in my own bed. Let them stay in hotels.”
