[via press release from HBO]


With the distinct possibility of divorce from Cheryl on the horizon, Larry faces major changes in his life. Will he be able to cope?

The Emmy(R)- and Golden Globe-winning comedy series CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, executive produced by and starring Larry David, kicks off its ten-episode eighth season SUNDAY, JULY 10 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.

CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM stars "Seinfeld" co-creator David as an over-the-top version of himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his life. The series also stars Jeff Garlin as David's manager Jeff and Susie Essman as Jeff's wife Susie.

The new season finds Larry continuing to face challenges both in Los Angeles and New York. Guest stars this season include series veterans Bob Einstein, Richard Lewis, Rosie O'Donnell, J.B. Smoove and Wanda Sykes, as well as Jonathan Ames, Bill Buckner, Rebecca Creskoff, Gary Cole, Michael J. Fox, Ana Gasteyer, Ricky Gervais, Michael Gross, Harry Hamlin, Larry Miller, Robert Smigel, Aida Turturro, Mookie Wilson and Jo Anne Worley.

Concluding its seventh season in Nov. 2009, CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM is HBO's longest-running scripted comedy or drama series. Season seven inspired critical raves, with the Washington Post calling the show "side-splitting," and hailing David as "the best thing to happen to TV comedy," while Newsday declared, "Larry David is a comic genius," and the Boston Globe described the series as "the funniest show on television."

CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM was created by Larry David; executive produced by Larry David, Jeff Garlin, Gavin Polone, Alec Berg, David Mandel, Jeff Schaffer, Tim Gibbons, Erin O'Malley and Larry Charles.
