HBO comedy booked for 10 episodes in 2009

HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” will be back in production in December, with 10 season-seven episodes slated for next year, sources close to the series said.

The pay cabler has yet to release an airdate or exec producer lineup for season seven of the comedy skein created, exec produced and starring Larry David.

Half-hour’s season-six finale aired in November of last year — a lengthy break, but not as pronounced as the 21-month gap between seasons five and six.

Launched in October 2000, series is the longest running in the HBO lineup.

Winner of the 2003 comedy series Golden Globe, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” was nominated for four Emmys this year, including series, guest thesp (Shelley Berman), casting and editing.

Finale left off with Larry still separated from wife Cheryl (Cheryl Hines) and hooking up with house guest Loretta Black (Vivica A. Fox), although it was left unclear as to whether that was a dream sequence.
