Melissa George, formerly of

Alias, swears she doesn't watch TV, but now that she's starring in a new HBO series, In Treatment with Gabriel Byrne and Dianne Wiest, she'll have to at least TiVo her own show. The new drama is based on the Israeli series Therapy and George tells TV Guide, "I play a patient and Gabriel Byrnes is my therapist. The whole show is in one room. It's just a monologue of me, very troubled, but very humorous, lots of love, lots of drama. On HBO you have the freedom to say whatever you want. HBO's genius. I'm very happy to be working for them. You can take risks and for an actress it's a pretty good gig." Also starring are Josh Charles, Blair Underwood, and Embeth Davidtz. An air date has not been announced but HBO has picked up 40 episodes. - reporting by Paula Paige
