HBO abruptly removed The Larry David Story from their schedule just hours before the docu-series was set to premiere.
In a tweet posted Monday night, HBO explained:
"The #LarryDavidStory on @HBOMax is being postponed. Instead, Larry has decided he wants to do it in front of an audience. Stay tuned for more info."
The two-part docuseries, chronicling the life of the 74-year-old comedic legend, was supposed to premiere on March 1 at 10 p.m. ET.
According to the network, the series was set to give viewers "a peek behind the proverbial curtain, as David gets candid about his personal and professional highs and lows, from his humble beginnings as an unfunny Brooklyn kid, to becoming America's favorite misanthrope."
In The Larry David Story, the 74-year-old sits down with friend and director Larry Charles to get candid about his personal and professional highs and lows. He reflects on his bumpy road to success and hit series Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm. He also shares his thoughts on everything from metaphysics to parenthood.
David said in the trailer released last month, "
I never thought of myself as funny. Anything I was associated with that could be successful was a shock."
David co-created Seinfeld with Jerry Seinfeld and served as executive producer for seven seasons. He created the HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm, in which he stars as a semi-fictionalized version of himself. He has written or co-written the stories in every episode of the improvisational comedy since its pilot episode in 1999.
