On the heels of my post about NBC, USA and comfort-food programming came an announcement for HBO that it renewed an excellent show I could only describe as discomfort food: In Treatment . The showrunners are changing; I’m guessing much of the cast will too (per usual). Excerpts from the announcement:
HBO has renewed the Emmy®-winning half-hour drama series IN TREATMENT, which will begin production on its third season in New York in early 2010, with debut scheduled for later in the year, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, Programming Group and West Coast Operations, HBO.
[Network-executive hosannas redacted.]
Gabriel Byrne (Emmy® nominee and Golden Globe winner for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama) stars in the series as Dr. Paul Weston, with additional cast members to be announced as they are confirmed.
[Critical hosannas redacted.]
Joining the show as executive producers are Anya Epstein (HBO’s “Tell Me You Love Me”) and Danny Futterman (“Capote”). Returning executive producers on the show include Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg and Hagai Levi. It is expected that Paris Barclay will return as an executive producer/director.
