LOS ANGELES, Nov. 1 (UPI) -- HBO will show episodes of its new half-hour U.S. drama "In Treatment" every week night for nine weeks, Zap2.it.com reported.

Starring Gabriel Byrne, Melissa George, Blair Underwood and Dianne Wiest, the series is based on an Israeli show also called "In Treatment."

Slated to start airing on Jan. 28, the U.S. version will follow a therapist named Paul (Byrne) as he treats several patients while undergoing psychotherapy himself, Zap2it.com said.

Each night will be devoted to one of Paul's patients and that patient's episodes will air on the same evening during the show's 45-episode run.

"'In Treatment' is a unique series that requires a unique scheduling strategy," said David Baldwin, head of program planning at HBO. "We are maximizing the exposure of this exciting new show in order to offer our subscribers the widest possible choice of viewing options, and the opportunity to stay engaged with the series for its entirety."

Starting with the show's second week, reruns of the previous week's episode for that day will air prior to new installments.
