Production Begins in Los Angeles on New Comedy Series "Help Me Help You," Starring Ted Danson, Premiering September 26 on Abc

[via press release from ABC]


Production has begun in Los Angeles on �Help Me Help You,� a new comedy starring Ted Danson (�Cheers,� �Becker�), which focuses on a collection of eccentric individuals in group therapy with a respected therapist -- who may quite possibly have more problems than his patients. The series premieres TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26 (9:30-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Dr. Bill Hoffman (Danson) is a brilliant therapist with a lucrative practice and the author of several definitive psychotherapy texts. He is an icon among his fellow therapists. But his over-inflated ego is dealt a blow when he is forced to come to grips with the end of his 25-year marriage to wife Anne (guest star Jane Kaczmarek, �Malcolm in the Middle�). Bill is also forced to deal with the news that his daughter is dating her psychology professor -- a man old enough to be her father and who also happens to idolize him. Things are changing too fast, and Bill is struggling to keep up.

When it comes to the group patients, Bill also has his work cut out for him: The newest group member, Dave (Charlie Finn, the film �The Dukes of Hazzard�), recently attempted suicide by jumping out of his office window -- and landing on his boss; Jonathan (Jim Rash, �Sky High�) is a self-avowed metro-sexual who is in serious denial that he might possibly be gay; Inger (Suzy Nakamura, �Dodgeball�) is a 25-year-old, self-made millionaire who totally lacks social skills and hasn�t had a real date in over six years; Darlene (Darlene Hunt, �I Heart Huckabees�) has too many psychological issues to count, including her obsession with Dr. Hoffman; and Michael (Jere Burns, �Good Morning Miami,� �Dear John�) has anger issues at work, which is what led him into mandatory group therapy.

The group will try to apply Bill�s advice to their lives out in the world, while Bill tries to figure out his own life problems.

�Help Me Help You� stars Ted Danson as Dr. Bill Hoffman, Charlie Finn as Dave, Jim Rash as Jonathan, Suzy Nakamura as Inger, Darlene Hunt as Darlene and Jere Burns as Michael.

�Help Me Help You� was created by Jennifer Konner & Alexandra Rushfield (�Undeclared�), who also serve as executive producers, along with Alex Reid (�Malcolm in the Middle�). The show is from Regency Television.
