An emotional and provocative 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 (Gabriel Byrne) through his week, capturing sessions with his patients.
In season two, Paul has moved his practice to Brooklyn, following his divorce from his wife Kate.
Rebuilding his practice while wrestling with some of the demons he left behind — including a lawsuit filed by the father of Alex, a patient who died last year — Paul commutes back to Maryland every Friday to see his children and to continue his own sessions with Dr. Gina Toll (Dianne Wiest).
His new clients include Mia, April, Oliver (and sometimes his divorcing parents) and Walter.
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 Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg, Warren Leight, Hagai Levi, Paris Barclay and Rodrigo Garcia and co-executive producer Noa Tishby, In Treatment 2 stars Gabriel Byrne as Paul, Hope Davis as Mia, Alison Pill as April, Aaron Grady Shaw as Oliver, John Mahoney as Walter, Dianne Wiest as Dr. Gina Toll and Michelle Forbes as Paul's wife Kate.
Oliver's parents are played by Russell Hornsby as Luke and Sherri Saum as Bess.
