Curb Your Enthusiasm began as a one-hour HBO special called Larry David: Curb Your Enthusiasm in 1999, and was expanded into a half-hour series the following year. It received positive reviews from the beginning, and has slowly expanded its cult following to become one of HBO’s signature shows. Curb has been nominated for numerous Emmy and Golden Globe awards, and in 2002 won the Golden Globe for Best Series, Musical or Comedy.

Curb Your Enthusiasm was created by star and Seinfeld co-creator Larry David, who also writes every episode (scripts are merely outlines that are fleshed out by improvisation among the actors). David, co-star Jeff Garlin, Gavin Polone and Robert B. Weide, who also directs many of the episodes, serve as executive producers.
