Uzo Aduba stars as “Dr. Brooke Taylor” in HBO’s new season of In Treatment.
The show plays homage to the original and is reimagined (under COVID-19 guidelines) from its three-season run back in 2010. Now the series brings a modernized take on mental health with a trio of patients seeing Dr. Brooke Taylor who is struggling with her own internal battles.
The series has a fresh take on topics that are often portrayed in Hollywood with stereotypes. In Treatment does quite the opposite. In Treatment shows viewers how every human may have some kind of baggage or internal struggle but also something we can relate to and how we can all benefit from therapy. Aduba talks about the role and what it means to play a character as layered and complex as Brooke is on TV.
“It’s exciting to see a woman like Brooke exist from start to finish, on TV, from her origin story to her present day story, see all of her complexities play out and know that none of them are things we’ve seen before, in a woman like me,” said Aduba. “I think that’s great. I hope we have more of it. I hope the train for television that seems to be intent on cutting a new path keeps laying more track down so we can see more of this.”
Aduba stars opposite of Liza Colon-Zayas, John Benjamin Hickey, Quintessa Swindell, and Anthony Ramos. Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg, Hagai Levi, Jennifer Schuur, Joshua Allen, and Melissa Bernstein executive produce, with Joanne Toll and Noa Tishby serving as co-executive producers. The HBO Entertainment production is in association with Leverage, Closest to the Hole Productions, and Sheleg.
The HBO therapy drama will return for Season 4 on Sunday, May 23 at 9 p.m ET/PT.
