Philosophising about the 'S'-word: Watch… and learn
Web Therapy is an American improvisational comedy series that premiered on Showtime on July 19, 2011. It is based on the web series of the same name and stars Lisa Kudrow (Friends) as Fiona Wallice, a therapist who works with patients over the internet.
The series follows Fiona Wallice, a therapist who has conceived of a new form of therapy: the titular “web therapy.” In her estimation, the traditional “50 minute hour” version of therapy gives people too much leeway to talk about irrelevant things. By dramatically shortening session time, she hopes to get results more quickly. The sessions are taped in the hope of attracting investors into promoting her new technique as a worldwide therapy option.
