Lexus is launching a web-based branded channel starring Friends Emmy-winning actress Lisa Kudrow. Kudrow, who played kooky Phoebe in the popular TV series, plays a wacky shrink named Fiona Wallice who dispenses really hilarious but useless 3-minute therapy sessions in what Lexus named Web Therapy.
The web-based comedy is being made available through an outfit named L Studio.
