The series was created by Bob Lowry and features Hank Azaria as Dr. Craig "Huff" Huffstodt, a successful psychiatrist whose life changes abruptly when a 15-year-old client commits suicide in Huff's office. After years of helping clients deal with their traumas, Huff now has to deal with his own, and is forced to re-evaluate his career and his entire take on life. The first season was broadcast on Showtime between November 7, 2004 and January 30, 2005. The second season premiered on April 2, 2006 and ended on June 25, 2006. Two days before the finale, Showtime announced that the show would not be picked up for a third season. [ [,0,3078116.story?coll=zap-news-headlines Zap2it] Retired in march 7, 2008]
