Showtime has picked up a second season of the docuseries “Couple’s Therapy” from filmmakers Josh Kriegman, Elyse Steinberg and Eli Despres. The sophomore season will feature therapist Dr. Orna Guralnik.
The logline: “Couples Therapy” unlocks a hidden world of other people’s relationships. Far from reality-show caricatures, this is true documentary filmmaking that brings viewers into the authentic and visceral experience of weekly therapy with four couples. Dr. Guralnik deftly guides the couples through the minefield of honest confrontation with each other and with themselves, revealing the real-life struggles – and extraordinary breakthroughs – typically hidden behind closed doors.
“Couples Therapy” is produced by Edgeline Films for Showtime. Kriegman, Steinberg and Despres serve as executive producers and directors. Carly Hugo and Matt Parker are producers, and Dan Savage is a consulting producer.
