The Shrink Next Door

Apple TV+ has shared the trailer for The Shrink Next Door, the highly-anticipated limited series starring Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Kathryn Hahn, and Casey Wilson. The first three episodes of the eight-episode limited series will premiere globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, November 12, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday thereafter through December 17.

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’s enticing offerings, his hard-headed sister Phyllis (Hahn) is not.

Directed by Michael Showalter (The Big Sick, The Eyes of Tammy Faye) and Jesse Peretz (High Fidelity, GLOW), and based on the script by Emmy, Golden Globe, BAFTA, WGA Award winner Georgia Pritchett (Succession), “The Shrink Next Door” hails from Civic Center Media in association with MRC Television. The series is based on the No. 1 new podcast of 2019 by Wondery and Bloomberg Media.

In addition to starring, Ferrell and Rudd also serve as executive producers on the project. Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum, and Brittney Segal will executive produce for Gloria Sanchez Productions. Pritchett executive produces in addition to writing, and director Michael Showalter executive produces alongside Jordana Mollick on behalf of Semi-Formal Productions.
