Showtime orders new season of ‘Web Therapy’

Lisa Kudrow stars in comedy, which originated as an online series

Showtime is going back into “Web Therapy,” ordering a new season of the digital laffer.

Toplined by Lisa Kudrow, “Web Therapy” originated as an online series from Is or Isn’t Entertainment with short, three to five minute webisodes. Shingle then began producing and launching halfhour episodes for a mobile platform, episodes that Showtime would then acquire and broadcast as a TV series.

“We’re shooting webisodes right now, and it’s just so much fun to do,” said Kudrow.

Content in halfhour format is a fleshed out version of the short webisode material. “Web Therapy” is currently entering into its fifth web season, in addition to its third TV season.

Paybler has ordered ten halfhour episodes for season three, slated for next year.

“Web Therapy” is created by Kudrow, Don Roos and Dan Bucatinsky for Is or Isn’t Entertainment. Roos also helms the comedy.
