TVLine Items: Second Friends Reunion Set for Web Therapy, Big C Casts Mercy Grad and More!

Former Friends David Schwimmer and Lisa Kudrow will soon reunite on the latter’s new Showtime series, Web Therapy.

Schwimmer has booked a four-episode arc on the comedy’s upcoming Season 2, EW.com reports, playing a man who was traumatized after witnessing a “romantic encounter” between his father and Kudrow’s character, Fiona. What’s more, he’s now only attracted to women who resemble the therapist. Hmm, wonder if he knows she has a sassy twin who waits tables in NYC?

A Season 1 stop-by from Courteney Cox marked Web Therapy‘s first reunion of Friends.

    Mistresses wasn’t that a UK show? The first season was on Netflix

    • Tess says:

      Exactly what I was thinking…they’ve been advertising the upcoming 3rd season of the UK show on BBC America. Presumably this ABC show is an American version of the UK show and not a same named/different premise show. But it would be nice for that to be clarified.

    Isn’t Mistresses just a Desperate Housewives Rehash?

    I like Jessica Lucas so hopefully Cult will be worth watching

    Ooooo I like network summer fare. We need far more scripted shows in summer to watch!
