Susie Essman, Jon Hamm, Patti Stanger
Jerry Seinfeld, Golden Globe-winning Mad Men star Jon Hamm and Oscar-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson will be the first panelists on Curb: The Discussion, TV Guide Network's new discussion show about the ethical dilemmas of Curb Your Enthusiasm, the network announced.
The round-table discussions, which will immediately follow episodes of Curb when it debuts on Wednesday, June 2 (10/9c), are co-produced by Curb creator Larry David and hosted by comedienne and Curb regular Susie Essman. Curb will be edited for language and nudity, but not to fit a traditional half-hour format. Episodes of The Discussion will air immediately after each Curb to round out episodes to an hour.

"With Susie Essman hosting and moderating Curb: The Discussion, the panels will no doubt result in hilarious, off-the-cuff television," said Diane Robina, Executive Vice President, Programming & Marketing for TV Guide Network. "And offering these original and engaging discussions will bring even more viewers to discover and rediscover Curb Your Enthusiasm."
Additional panelists will include actor and producer Seth Green, heavy metal singer and film director Rob Zombie, actor and author Hill Harper, comedienne and television writer Merrill Markoe, physician and television personality Dr. Drew Pinsky, radio and television personality Adam Corolla, actor Rex Lee, musician Dave Navarro, Millionaire Matchmaker star Patti Stanger, actor and standup comedian D.L. Hughley, and comedians Jeff Ross and Patton Oswalt, among others. Media pundits and social figures will include Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough and co-host Mika Brzezinski, celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, New York Times ethicist Randy Cohen, and clinical and forensic psychologist Dr. Stan Katz, among others.
Award-winning television producer Scott Carter (Executive Producer, Real Time with Bill Maher and Politically Incorrect) is producing with David and Curb executive producers Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer and David Mandel.
