NEWS FLASH: Robert Weide returns to Curb Your Enthusiasm after a two-year absence, to direct "Palestinian Chicken." It earns him a Directors Guild of America Award, and an Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Comedy Direction.

-

In 1999, Larry David asked me to direct him in a one-hour comedy special which was eventually titled, Larry David: Curb Your Enthusiasm. Although we didn't know it at the time, this would lead to the HBO series called Curb Your Enthusiasm, which premiered in October of 2000.

The second season of Curb (2001) won the AFI (American Film Institute) Award for Comedy Series of the Year. Since then, Curb has earned Emmy nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series for four consecutive years, each time bringing me a nomination for comedy directing.

I brought home my third Emmy for Season Three's ''Krazee-Eyez Killa,'' and was nominated for a DGA award (Director's Guild of America) for Season Four's ''The Carpool Lane.''

For repeat broadcasts of episodes from all five seasons, see HBO's on-line schedule.

The first five seasons of Curb are available on DVD. (The Season One DVD includes the original one-hour special from 1999 that inspired the series.)
