Larry David Confirms 'Curb' Season 8. Also 'Curb' Producers Teaming Up With Sacha Baron Cohen For New Show

Pretty, pretty, pretty good news. Larry David has announced that 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' will return for an eighth season.

Production is set to start on a new ten part series in Los Angeles during the summer, to be broadcast next year.

"After much soul searching - and by the way, it was nowhere to be found - I have decided to do another season of Curb," says Larry David. "I look forward to the end of shooting, when I can once again resume the hunt for my elusive soul. I know it's here somewhere or perhaps in the rugged mountainous regions of Pakistan."

Ricky Gervais is widely expected to feature in the new season, there has also been suggestion by David that London may feature as a backdrop for part of the season.

In related news Sacha Baron Cohen has reportedly teamed up with the executive producers of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer and David Mandel who are all former 'Seinfeld' writers to pitch a new comedy show.

Details are vague, but the project is being touted around various televison studios heads, and is seen as hot property.
