Sky Italia to adapt ‘In Treatment’

Saverio Costanzo helms; Sergio Castellitto toplines

ROME

Rupert Murdoch’s Sky Italia paybox is co-producing an Italo adaptation of “In Treatment,” in the latest localized version of the hit Isreali therapy TV series.

Shooting will start in mid-November, with Lorenzo Mieli and Mario Gianani’s Wildside shingle producing for Sky Cinema. Show is scheduled to go on air in March 2013 in Italy.

Italo helmer Saverio Costanzo, known on the fest circuit for “Private,” “In Memory of Myself” and “The Solitude of Prime Numbers,” is directing the first season comprising 35 installments.

Italo multihyphenate Sergio Castellitto (“Don’t Move”) will play the psychologist, named Giovanni, who sees a range of clients — including an undercover cop, a traumatized dancer and a couple in a crisis — as well as his own therapist, an old friend and mentor called Anna.

The long-gestating Italo version of Israeli helmer and scribe Hagai Levi’s “Be’Tipul” marks the format’s 14th adapatation, including HBO’s in the U.S., on which Levi served as an executive producer.

Other countries where “In Treatment” has gotten local treatment include Canada, where the French Canadian “En Therapie” airs on Quebec’s TV5; Brazil, where “Sessao de Terapia” premiered this month on cable/satellite channel Globo; and Eastern Europe, where HBO has adapted it in several countries, including Romania, the Czech Republic and Poland.
