An unusual and emotional new series, In Treatment brings dynamic focus to a staple of modern society – the psychotherapy session.
Adapted from a popular Israeli series, the show follows psychoanalyst Paul Weston through his week, capturing a session each night with his patients – Laura, Alex, Sophie and married couple Jake and Amy – before concluding each Friday in the office of Paul’s own therapist, Gina.
Stepping inside the tangled mind of a man who counsels others for a living, In Treatment renders an intricate portrayal of the experts we rely on for perspective.
Executive-produced by Hagai Levi, Rodrigo Garcia, Steve Levinson and Mark Wahlberg, the first season of In Treatment stars Gabriel Byrne as Paul, Josh Charles as Jake, Embeth Davidtz as Amy, Melissa George as Laura, Blair Underwood as Alex, Mia Wasikowska as Sophie, Dianne Wiest as Dr. Gina Toll and Michelle Forbes as Paul's wife Kate.
