Episodes from the upcoming ninth season of the HBO comedy "Curb Your Enthusiasm" are now on the Internet. New episodes from the Larry David comedy were leaked as part of the same cyber breach that recently infiltrated the premium network.
HBO released this statement:“We are not in communication with the hacker and we’re not going to comment every time a new piece of information is released. It has been widely reported that there was a cyber incident at HBO. The hacker may continue to drop bits and pieces of stolen information in an attempt to generate media attention. That’s a game we’re not going to participate in. Obviously, no company wants their proprietary information stolen and released on the internet. Transparency with our employees, partners, and the creative talent that works with us has been our focus throughout this incident and will remain our focus as we move forward. This incident has not deterred us from ensuring HBO continues to do what we do best.”
"Curb" is set to return Oct. 1 after being off the air for five years.
The hackers also released Sunday’s episode of "Insecure", plus episodes of "Ballers" and upcoming series "Barry" (a Bill Hader comedy which doesn’t debut on the network until 2018) and "The Deuce" (a 70s-set porn drama with James Franco, which premieres in September).
The dump did not contain any upcoming episodes of "Game of Thrones", a show HBO insiders have been confident were not exposed in the hack.
