Former "Friends" star Lisa Kudrow is making herself laugh.
She's reading tweets written by her character, Fiona Wallice, on the online show "Web Therapy."
"Web Therapy" is available on Hulu, lstudio.com and for purchase on iTunes. Showtime has said it will air at least 10 episodes starting next year, with new material shot for TV.
Kudrow's character is a self-absorbed therapist who has decided that 3-minute sessions by webcam are sufficient to diagnose a patient and dole out advice. The conversation often veers off-topic and onto Wallice.
Each episode plays out like viewers are looking at an actual computer screen with Kudrow and a co-star interacting in double boxes over web chat.
