Lisa Kudrow’s “Web Therapy” began life as a web series before it was picked up by Showtime and fleshed out into a half-hour show. Now Showtime’s ordering another round of the comedy, which was created by and stars Kudrow, who writes the series with director Don Roos (“Happy Endings”) and Dan Bucatinsky.
Season three of the show will air in 2013 and will consist of ten episodes following the adventures of Fiona Wallice (Kudrow), a transparently self-interested therapist pushing a new form of treatment done in short bursts over Skype.
“We’re shooting webisodes right now, and it’s just so much fun to do,” says Kudrow. “These actors we get to play with are so inventive and nimble and FUNNY. We’re beyond thrilled to get a third season on Showtime because it’s such a good fit.”
The show features Bucatinsky, Victor Garber, Lily Tomlin, Jennifer Elise Cox, Maulik Pancholy, Julie Claire, Alan Cumming, Rosie O’Donnell and David Schwimmer in recurring roles, but its the guest spots that have been particular impressive, with Meryl Streep, Molly Shannon, Minnie Driver, Selma Blair, Conan O’Brien and Rashida Jones all stopping by to complicate Fiona’s life or as clients (or both).
Matt LeBlanc (who currently starring in Showtime’s “Episodes”), Meg Ryan and Jesse Tyler Ferguson (of “Modern Family”) have already been booked as guest stars in the new season.
