Lisa Kudrow gets to reunite with her fellow Friends alum David Schwimmer in her Showtime TV series Web Therapy. Kudrow, the actress who we all know more as the goofy but lovable blonde in the classic hit comedy series now plays Dr. Fiona Wallice, a therapist who decides to conduct just three minutes of sessions with her clients via webcam chat.
The former Friends star appeared on the Today show to talk about her show’s second season and the guests stars who will be making an appearance. When asked what it was like to work again with her former co-star she said, “It was so fun and I did have like, 10 seconds, when we first started of, ‘I don’t know what Phoebe says to Ross here.’”
Schwimmer will be appearing in a four-episode arc of Web Therapy as Newell Miller, who apparently is the son of a professor whom Kudrow’s character, Dr. Wallice, had an affair with in college. His appearance on the show will mark the second time Kudrow is reunited with a former Friends star; the first being Courtney Cox who appeared in one episode from the previous season.
Other big-name stars that will be dropping by to see the (self-centered) doctor include Conan O’Brien, Molly Shannon, Meryl Streep, Rosie O’Donnell, Minnie Driver and Selma Blair. Sigh. Seeing that list surely makes me hate my cable provider even more for discontinuing the inclusion of Showtime on its channel lineup.
Anyway, here’s a sneak peek at the second season of Web Therapy, which premieres on Monday July 2nd at 11pm EST.
