NEW YORK, Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- James Andrew Miller, award-winning journalist and best-selling author, teams with DGital Media, leading creator of premium, on-demand audio entertainment, to announce "Origins" Chapter One: Curb Your Enthusiasm, the first installment of an all-new podcast series exploring epochal beginnings—whether from the fields of film, television, music, publishing, or even human relationships.
"Origins" will explore how greatness starts, how new ideas take shape, and how critical innovations come to be. This is the first chapter of a four-chapter fall 2017 slate.
The five-part Curb podcast will launch on September 6th and feature conversations with more than a dozen key figures in the much-lauded, Emmy-winning show – among them, Larry David, Cheryl Hines, Susie Essman, Ted Danson, Richard Lewis, Bob Einstein and others. Listeners will hear first-hand accounts of how the show was created, how it evolved, and how it changed the lives of everyone involved. The smash hit series begins its eagerly awaited ninth season on HBO October 1st.
"Curb is one of my favorite TV shows of all time, and Larry David is a brilliant contributor to our culture," says Miller. "Listeners will be able to join me as we examine the uniquely creative minds of Larry David and his colleagues to discover what really happened in those early days of this groundbreaking comedy show."
"This is an unmatched opportunity to look behind the scenes into a show both celebrated and loved," says Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer at DGital Media. "Curb Your Enthusiasm makes the perfect kick-off chapter to the Origins podcast, and Jim's background, relationships, and interviewing skills make this an event not to be missed."
"Origins" will be available to subscribe and listen to on-demand through Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn, and more distribution outlets. You can listen to a preview right here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/origins-with-james-andrew-miller/id1266445999?mt=2
