Adapted from a hit Israeli series and set within the intimate confines of individual psychotherapy sessions with five sets of patients, it stars Gabriel Byrne as Paul, a therapist who exhibits a confident demeanour when treating his patients. But Paul displays a crippling insecurity while counselled by his own therapist, played by Dianne Wiest.
Likened to a theatrical two-hander, guest actors appear each night as patients, including Australians Melissa George and Mia Wasikowska and US actors Blair Underwood and Josh Charles. They continue therapy sessions in subsequent weeks.
The psychological drama will air every weeknight from Monday September 29 8:00pm Showcase. Viewers can see all of the week’s sessions back to back on Saturday from 6pm – 8.30pm.
Both Byrne and Wiest were recently nominated for an Emmy for their roles.
