Deadline reports that Showtime’s Emmy-nominated Web Therapy is being remade for a trans-Atlantic audience, with Stephen Mangan, co-star of Episodes and Green Wing, stepping into the leading role. Retitled Hang Ups, the series will star Mangan (who also co-wrote the new series) as a narcissistic therapist who starts seeing clients exclusively via the web.

The original series (and web series, before that) starred Lisa Kudrow as self-involved, self-appointed online therapist Fiona Wallice, with Victor Garber and Lily Tomlin in supporting roles. The new series will air on the U.K.’s Channel 4, and will air some time in 2018.
