Lisa Kudrow: Web Therapy Review
On Web Therapy, Lisa Kudrow plays Fiona Wallice, a therapist that has little patience for her patients. On the show, Fiona counsels a star-studded lineup of guests via Skype. Lisa Kudrow said that Fiona doesn’t see people in person because that is too uncomfortable.
She really only wants to do three minute sessions because that is all that will sustain her attention. Kudrow said they have story arcs, but no scripts. The actors come in and they improvise. Lisa Kudrow said the episodes take half a day to shoot.
Web Therapy: Meryl Streep Guest Stars
On Web Therapy, Meryl Streep guest starred where she was a gay conversion therapist and tried to help Fiona and her husband, Kip, who is not officially gay, but he is and he is running for Congress so he has to get straightened out. Kathie Lee and Hoda asked how they got Meryl Streep to do it? Kudrow said she saw Meryl and she said she likes Web Therapy and she’d really like to do it. Lisa said that’s great, but understand I am going to email you to do it and she did.
