HBO sticks with ‘Arliss’

Sports skein picked up, 'Curb' returns for 3rd season

HBO, which last month ordered scripts for a new season of “Arliss,” has officially picked up a 10-episode seventh season of the show.

In addition, the pay cabler made official the pickup of the 10-episode third season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” “Curb,” which creator, exec producer and star Larry David mounts from an outline rather than a script, was picked up several weeks ago.

The “Arliss” script order last month surprised some, as the show does not reap nearly the level of viewership or press attention that many other HBO original series draw (Daily Variety, Nov. 6). In fact, at the time the cabler ordered the “Arliss” scripts, HBO original programming prexy Chris Albrecht said the “jury’s still out” on “Arliss” and “Mind of the Married Man.” “Man” earned a script order on a second season then as well.

The “Arliss” production order will bring the number of produced episodes to 79 — enough episodes to fuel a potential syndication or self-syndication run of the show. Based on past practice, HBO would be unlikely to sell reruns to another network, but rather would be expected to use the episodes on its many multiplex networks.
