Apple TV+ doesn’t lack for star-studded programming, but the streaming service is nonetheless raising the bar with its upcoming limited series, “The Shrink Next Door.” Apple unveiled the full series trailer, which stars Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Kathryn Hahn, and Casey Wilson, on Tuesday.
“The Shrink Next Door” marks a reunion for Ferrell and Rudd, whose chemistry made the “Anchorman” films major commercial successes. The Apple TV+ series also marks a return to starring television roles for the duo, as well as one more collaboration between frequent acting cohorts, Rudd and Hahn (who’ve appeared together in “How Do You Know,” “Our Idiot Brother,” and “Wanderlust,” as well as “Parks and Recreation” and other projects). The eight-episode series will premiere November 12 on Apple TV+.
Apple’s synopsis for the upcoming series reads: “Inspired by true events and an original podcast of the same name, ‘The Shrink Next Door’ follows the decades-long manipulation and exploitation by psychiatrist Dr. Isaac ‘Ike’ Herschkopf (Rudd) and his longtime patient Martin ‘Marty’ Markowitz (Ferrell). Dr. Ike is accompanied by his unsuspecting wife Bonnie Herschkopf (Wilson) and though Marty may be defenseless against Dr. Ike enticing offerings, his hard-headed sister Phyllis (Hahn) is not.”
“The Shrink Next Door” is the latest in a string of high-profile TV credits for Hahn, who had major roles in Disney+’s “WandaVision” and Apple TV+’s “Central Park.” As for Wilson, her recent major television credits include roles in Showtime’s “Black Monday” and HBO’s “Mrs. Fletcher” (alongside Hahn).
“The Shrink Next Door” premieres Friday, November 12 on Apple TV+. Check out the trailer below.
