The first shot of Curb Your Enthusiasm's long-awaited Seinfeld reunion been released by the Home Box Office Television Channel. Furthermore, Larry David talked to press about the scenario's inspiration, and how it will play out:
"The context is for years I've been asked about a 'Seinfeld' reunion -- as has Jerry and the other cast members," Larry David said at the "Curb" panel at the Television Critics Association's press tour in Pasadena.
"I would say, 'No, there's no reunion, we would never do that, it's a lame idea' ... but it might be really funny to do that on 'Curb' ... and I kept thinking of how we could pull this off, and Jerry was game ... so we're doing a 'Seinfeld' reunion show. ... We'll see the read-through, parts of rehearsals, the show being filmed ... you won't see the entire [mock 'Seinfeld' episode] ... you'll get an idea of what happened 11 years later [for the characters]."
"It was like getting on a bicycle," David said of writing "Seinfeld" dialog again. "Coming up with the right ideas about what they'd be doing 11 years later ... that took some thought."
How David, or science, plans to explain that Julia Louis-Dreyfus is somehow way hotter now than she was literally 20 years ago remains a mystery.
