Here’s the press release from Showtime:
SHOWTIME(R) PRESCRIBES ANOTHER ROUND OF “WEB THERAPY”
Season Three To Include Guest Stars Matt LeBlanc, Meg Ryan & Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Among Others
LOS ANGELES, CA (November 16, 2012) – SHOWTIME has ordered a third season of WEB THERAPY, the web-to-television comedy series starring Emmy(R) Award winner Lisa Kudrow. Season three will include ten, half-hour episodes and air on the network in 2013.
“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.”
Some of the biggest names in film and television including current SHOWTIME star and Golden Globe(R) Award winner Matt LeBlanc (Episodes); Meg Ryan (You’ve Got Mail); and Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family) will be featured as guest stars – along with more celebrities to be announced soon. Kudrow will continue in her role as the delusional and narcissistic online therapist “Fiona Wallice,” who treats patients in three-minute sessions via webcam.
Last season included an extraordinary guest star list featuring Meryl Streep, David Schwimmer, Rosie O’Donnell, Conan O’Brien, Molly Shannon, Minnie Driver, and Lily Tomlin, among others. Entertainment Weekly ranked WEB THERAPY number one on their Must List, calling it a “whip-smart series.” Additionally, last year’s web version garnered an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Special Class – Short-format Live-Action Entertainment Programs.
WEB THERAPY is created by Kudrow, Don Roos & Dan Bucatinsky for Is or Isn’t Entertainment. Bucatinsky will also return in his role as “Jerome,” Fiona’s meek, but ambitious, assistant. Roos continues to serve as director.
