'In Treatment' gets another session on HBO

Moving production from L.A. to New York

HBO has renewed half-hour drama "In Treatment" for a second season and is moving production on the show from Los Angeles to New York.

The second season of "In Treatment," based on the Israeli series of the same name, will feature a brand new roster of patients to Dr. Paul Weston (Gabriel Byrne). Byrne and Dianne Wiest, who plays Paul's own therapist, Dr. Gina Toll, are returning.

Taking the reins of the show in its second season is executive producer/showrunner Warren Leight, who recently inked a deal with HBO.

He is exec producing with Rodrigo Garcia, Hagai Levi, Stephen Levinson and Mark Wahlberg.

Production on the new season is slated to begin in New York in the fall for a 2009 premiere.

This is the second series after ABC's "Ugly Betty" to move filming from Los Angeles to New York in the past month. New York state and New York City recently passed big new tax incentives for film and TV projects.
