A psychotherapist questions his abilities and gets help by reuniting with his old therapist, whom he has not seen for ten years.
In Treatment is an American HBO drama, produced and developed by Rodrigo García, about a psychotherapist, 57-year-old Dr. Paul Weston, and his weekly sessions with patients, including one with his own therapist at the end of the week. The program, which stars Gabriel Byrne as Paul, debuted on January 28, 2008, as a five-night-a-week series. The program’s format, script and opening theme are based, often word for word, on Hagai Levi’s successful Israeli series BeTipul, which won every possible award for a drama series in the Israeli Academy Awards. After winning critical acclaim and numerous honors, including Emmy, Golden Globe and Writers Guild awards, In Treatment returned for a second season, premiering on April 5, 2009. The second season built on the success of the first, winning a 2009 Peabody Award. The third season premiered on October 26, 2010 with four episodes.
