The TV Guide Network won't curb Curb Your Enthusiasm.
The Larry David HBO series, making its basic cable debut in March on TV Guide Network, won't be edited down to fit a traditional half-hour format, the network announced. It will only be edited for nudity and language.
"Curb Your Enthusiasm is one of the most brilliant comedy series in modern television, and a show of this caliber deserves to be shown in as much of its entirety as possible," said the president of TV Guide Network and TVGuide.com, Ryan O'Hara. "We are thrilled that our viewers will be able to enjoy the full-length episodes as conceived by the show creator Larry David."
To honor the integrity of the show, TV Guide Network will keep as much original content as is suitable for basic cable audiences, the network said. The episodes will be edited solely for standards and practices.
Curb Your Enthusiasm recently wrapped its seventh season on HBO, with the highly anticipated reunion of the cast of Seinfeld. The show recently garnered a Screen Actors Guild nomination for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series and a nomination from the Writers Guild of America awards for best comedy.
Curb Your Enthusiasm will make its TV Guide Network debut Monday, March 10 at 10/9c on TV Guide Network.
