A massive cast has just been announced for Stephen Mangan’s “Hang Ups,” a UK adaptation of Lisa Kudrow’s Emmy-nominated “Web Therapy” for Channel 4.
Mangan plays Dr Richard Pitt as he gives weekly quickfire webcam therapy sessions. Confirmed actors who will participate include: David Tennant (“Broadchurch”), Jessica Hynes (“Spaced”), Monica Dolan (“W1A”), Katherine Parkinson (“The IT Crowd”), Celia Imrie (“The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”) and four “Game of Thrones” actors – Conleth Hill, Charles Dance, Harry Lloyd and Richard E Grant.
Mangan will also co-write the scripts for the series with Robert Delamere. The show will see his character’s patients “present a hilarious and outrageous catalogue of neuroses, phobias, issues, anxieties and psychopathies”.
The 2018 series will comprise six episodes that each run at half an hour.
