Barclay readies for ‘Treatment’

TV vet upped to exec producer on HBO show

Multi-hyphenate Paris Barclay has been upped to exec producer status on HBO’s “In Treatment.”

Barclay, a TV vet whose long resume as a director-producer includes stints on “NYPD Blue,” “ER” and “The West Wing,” will helm at least 10 segs of the psychotherapy drama starring Gabriel Byrne. Barclay served as a co-exec producer and directed 12 of the 43 half-hour episodes in the show’s first season.

“In Treatment,” which focuses entirely on Byrne’s sessions with his patients, ran in an unconventional Monday-Friday skedding pattern in its first season. HBO has ordered 35 segs for the sophomore sesh and is expected to continue to run multiple segs each week, but it may not be in the Monday-Friday pattern (Daily Variety, June 23).

“In Treatment,” based on an Israeli series, was not a big ratings grabber for HBO, but it snared three Primetime Emmy noms, including lead drama actor for Byrne. Exec producers for season two, in addition to Barclay, are creator Hagai Levy, Warren Leight, Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Rodrigo Garcia.

Barclay’s other recent series helming credits include Showtime’s “Weeds,” USA’s “Monk” and CBS’ “CSI” and “Cold Case.”
