Conan O'Brien Needs Lisa Kudrow's 'Web Therapy' In Internet Series (VIDEO)
Conan O'Brien needs therapy. And only one woman can help him work through his anger issues: Lisa Kudrow.
In fiction, anyway. Kudrow's improvised web series "Web Therapy" kicked off its fourth season last week, and starting next month, Conan O'Brien will play the first celebrity to appear as himself seeking help from Kudrow's character, Fiona Wallice. Other notable guest "patients" have included Meryl Streep, Rosie O'Donnell and Courteney Cox, but O'Brien is the first celebrity to appear as himself.
Kudrow and O'Brien have a long history together. The two met when they both were students at The Groundlings improvisational comedy training center in the late 1980s, well before "Friends" or "Late Night," and briefly dated during that time. Kudrow has been a frequent guest on O'Brien's talk shows throughout the years, and now, O'Brien is returning the favor.
The Hollywood Reporter, who posted the exclusive sneak peek of O'Brien's three-episode arc (above), also reports that O'Brien will confront his "anger issues." Those who have seen the documentary "Conan O'Brien Can't Stop" may not be surprised by this.
O'Brien's episodes of "Web Therapy" will begin airing on Dec. 13 on LStudio.com. The first season of "Web Therapy" was a rare instance when a web series made the jump to television after it was aired in full on Showtime after its Internet run.
