"In Treatment" (HBO TV show) is an emotional and provocative series that brings dynamic focus to a staple of modern society — the psychotherapy session. Adapted from a popular Israeli series, the show follows psychoanalyst Paul Weston (Gabriel Byrne, who won a Golden Globe for his role) through his week, capturing sessions with his patients. In season two, Paul has moved his practice to Brooklyn, following his divorce from his wife Kate. Rebuilding his practice while wrestling with some of the demons he left behind — including a lawsuit filed by the father of Alex, a patient who died last year — Paul commutes back to Maryland every Friday to see his children and to continue his own sessions with Dr. Gina Toll (Emmy and Oscar winner Dianne Wiest).

His new clients include Mia, April, Oliver (and sometimes his divorcing parents) and Walter. Stepping inside the tangled mind of a man who counsels others for a living, 'In Treatment' renders an intricate portrayal of the experts we rely on for perspective.

Executive-produced by Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg, Warren Leight, Hagai Levi, Paris Barclay and Rodrigo Garcia and co-executive producer Noa Tishby, HBO's "In Treatment" stars Gabriel Byrne ("The Usual Suspects," "Vanity Fair") as Paul, Hope Davis (Golden Globe nominee for "American Splendor") as Mia, Alison Pill ("Milk," Tony nominee for "The Lieutenant of Inishmore") as April, Aaron Shaw ("Lincoln Heights") as Oliver, John Mahoney (Emmy nominee for "Frasier") as Walter, Dianne Wiest (Oscar winner for "Hannah and Her Sisters," "Bullets over Broadway" and Emmy winner for her role as Gina last season on "In Treatment") as Dr. Gina Toll and Michelle Forbes ("Kalifornia," "Battlestar Galactica: Razor") as Paul's wife Kate. Oliver's parents are played by Russell Hornsby as Luke and Sherri Saum as Bess.
