A "Seinfeld" reunion is in the works, but not not for NBC, which carried the original series. Instead, the reunion will appear on HBO’s "Curb Your Enthusiasm." [Note: not, of course, what we called it when we first posted this item, the "Larry David Show."]
David himself delivered the exciting news at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour on Thursday.
David co-created "Seinfeld" with Jerry Seinfeld. In that series, the George character, played by Jason Alexander, was based on David.
David told reporters at TCA that heretofore, wherever anyone would mention a "Seinfeld" reunion, "“I always said no. We would never do that, it’s a lame idea. And then I thought it might be very funny to do that on ‘Curb.’ And I kept thinking about it, and started to think of different scenarios. I called Jerry, and Jerry was game. I called the others, and we did it.”
As opposed to just being a "Seinfeld" reunion show on the "Curb" show, viewers will see portions of rehearsals, read-throughs and various other scenes leading up to the reunion. And a portion of the reunion will also be shown on the "Curb" show.
Furthermore, the various co-stars of "Seinfeld" will interact with David alone on some episodes, David said.
“You’ll get an idea of what happened [to the characters] 11 years later,” David said. “You won’t see a [Seinfeld reunion] show from beginning to end, but you’ll see parts of it.”
