Kudrow’s hilarious online show drew millions of viewers before moving to Showtime, where it’s netting guest stars from Meryl Streep to Rosie O’Donnell. Nicole LaPorte visits the set.
Actress Minnie Driver is staring into a mirror, assessing the unmoving bulb of chocolate-colored tresses that has been carefully positioned on her scalp.
“It’s a good shape. It’s just a little wiggy, part-wise,” says director Don Roos, from the floor of the hair-and-makeup room, where he’s sitting, squinting up at Driver.
It is a Friday afternoon on the set of Web Therapy—the web series turnedShowtime show starring Lisa Kudrow as Fiona Wallice, the most unqualified therapist on the planet—and Roos is going over story points with Kudrow and Driver (who’s guest-starring as a rehabbed former tween star) before the shoot.
