HBO premieres the first of 43 episodes of In Treatment a new half hour drama series starring Gabriel Byrne and adapted from an enormously popular Israeli series created by Hagai Levi (one of HBOs executive producers along with Rodrigo Garcia Steve Levinson and Mark Wahlberg). Set within the intimate confines of individual psychotherapy sessions with five sets of patients the series centres around Paul (Byrne) a therapist who exhibits an insightful confident demeanour when treating his patients but displays a crippling insecurity while counselled by his own therapist Gina (Dianne Wiest). Patients undergoing treatment with Paul include a young doctor (Melissa George) who has fallen in love with Paul; a Navy pilot (Blair Underwood) evaluating his life after a failed mission in Iraq; a teenage gymnast (Mia Wasikowska) with suicidal tendencies and a sexually passionate couple (Josh Charles and Embeth Davidtz) who are troubled in all other areas of their lives.
