HBO’s drama series ‘In Treatment’ starring Golden Globe winning Irish actor Gabriel Byrne, debuts on 3e - sibling channel to TV3 - this week
Based on the popular Israeli series of the same name 'In Treatment' stars Byrne as Paul, a therapist who exhibits an insightful, reserved demeanour while treating his patients but displays a crippling insecurity and anger when he seeks the counsel of his own therapist, played by Dianne Wiest. Melissa George (Derailed) and Blair Underwood (Rules of Engagement) also co-star in the series.
Byrne took home a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television series in February for the show.
'In Treatment' is executive produced by Rodrigo Garcia, whose HBO directing credits include 'Big Love' and 'Six Feet Under'; Hagai Levi, creator of the hit Israeli series on which the show is based; and Stephen Levinson and Mark Wahlberg, who are also executive producers of HBO’s hit series 'Entourage'.
Season One runs for 43 episodes, and is broadcast Monday – Friday each evening on 3e at 11pm. All five episodes broadcast each week will be repeated that Sunday at 8pm.
A spokesperson for 3e said: "We are so pleased to be able to exclusively air this award-winning series with a stellar cast, starring our very own Gabriel Byrne on 3e. It has become a huge hit across the Atlantic and we are sure it will prove to be just as popular with Irish viewers."
