Digital Version of ‘Web Therapy’ Goes to StyleHaul
Season four of “Web Therapy,” a comedy series starring Lisa Kudrow, returns to Showtime for a fourth season on October 22. But the shorter, digital version of the show is transferring to YouTube network StyleHaul after spending its first four seasons on L Studio, an online video hub created by Lexus.
The digital-series acquisition is part of StyleHaul’s original content expansion, which is now being overseen by the company’s chief content officer Mia Goldwyn.
The network also has a multi-year deal with FremantleMedia to develop and distribute multiple original series — beginning with “The Crew,” which debuted earlier this year. Fremantle is handling international distribution for “Web Therapy.”
“Web Therapy” follows Kudrow’s character, a terrible therapist who conducts sessions with clients through video chat.
Season four will bring more major film and TV stars to the show, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jon Hamm, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Matthew Perry (the fourth “Friend” to appear so far), Allison Janney, Lauren Graham, Craig Ferguson, and Dax Shepard. Series co-creator Dan Bucatinsky will reprise his role as the therapist’s old assistant, with other returning appearances scheduled from the likes of Billy Crystal, Lily Tomlin, Rashida Jones, and Victor Garber.
“Web Therapy” is created by Kudrow, Bucatinsky, and Dan Roos for Is or Isn’t Entertainment. Kudrow and Bucatinsky also serve as executive producers, while Roos directs.Tags: Dan Bucatinsky, L Studio, Lisa Kudrow, mia goldwyn, Showtime, StyleHaul, Web Therapy
