Lexus has tapped former Friends star Lisa Kudrow to headline a series on their new Internet-only branded channel, taking the reins in a shortform comedy series titled Web Therapy, in which she plays a nutty shrink.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lexus' new channel is called L Studio, and is available at LStudio.com.
In Web Therapy, Kudrow plays Fiona Wallice, a psychotherapist who conducts absurdly abridged three-minute sessions via the Internet that do little to help her clients. She juggles five different clients in 15 episodes, including those played by Bob Balaban, Jane Lynch, Rashida Jones, Tim Bagley and Dan Bucatinsky.
"This is the kind of idea that's just meant for the Web," said Kudrow, who wrote and produced "Therapy" with Bucatinsky, her partner at Is or Isn't Prods. Don Roos directed all episodes of Web Therapy.
Kudrow isn't Hollywood's only representative on L Studio. Sex and the City writer-producer Amy B. Harris joins the site in October with a scripted series of her own, Puppy Love, in which she examines the relationships between people and their dogs. Harris recruited many other "Sex" writers to contribute to the 40-episode series. The cast includes Famke Janssen, Janel Moloney and Heather Burns.
