One of the stars of HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” put a number on the chances that more episodes of the revered comedy series will be produced.
Access Hollywood reports that Jeff Garlin, who plays “Seinfeld” co-creator Larry David’s manager on the show, put the odds at “51 percent.”
Speaking to an audience of television critics Tuesday, Garlin added: “I’d say a decent chance. Not good, not bad, decent.”
Garlin said the decision is entirely up to “Curb” creator and star David, calling the comedy “the only show that I know in the history of television that only moves forward because the creator is basing his decision entirely on creativity.”
Garlin is quoted in the story saying that David, who made out well on “Seinfeld,” is so “rich that he doesn’t have to do anything unless it’s good. He doesn’t want to embarrass himself. It’s pretty pure.”
HBO programming boss Michael Lombardo also commented recently on prospects for the show, saying of David at the Television Critics Association summer press tour last week: “I don’t think it’s out of his system. I think he’s enjoying his life, and I think he’ll come back to it. And when he comes back, we’ll figure it out.”
The show last aired new episodes in 2011.
