TV Guide Network and TV Land announced that they will jointly acquire basic-cable rights to Curb Your Enthusiasm, the award-winning HBO comedy series produced by and starring Seinfeld co-creator Larry David.
The show will air on TV Guide Network for a multi-year run starting in February 2010. TV Land will begin airing the series on TV Land PRIME immediately following TV Guide Network's term.
In addition, both networks will acquire certain broadband, wireless and video-on-demand rights, bringing Curb Your Enthusiasm to multiple screens for fans to enjoy.
"Acquiring a series of this caliber truly underscores our commitment to defining TV Guide Network as a destination for some of the best shows on television," said Ryan O'Hara, president of TV Guide Network and TVGuide.com. "Curb Your Enthusiasm is our second major acquisition this year and it will become another key building block in our programming line-up for 2010 and beyond."
Curb's seventh season, airing now on HBO, has garnered tremendous buzz because it features the first reunion of the cast of Seinfeld, who play themselves, since the show's finale 11 years ago.
Curb Your Enthusiasm won the Golden Globe for Best Comedy Series in 2002 and was nominated for Best Comedy Series Emmy in 2008.
