DESCRIPTION:
(from Apple's press release, April 2020) In a highly competitive situation, Apple has given a straight-to-series order to "The Shrink Next Door," a new, eight-episode limited series starring Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd, based on the No. 1 new podcast of 2019 by Wondery and Bloomberg Media, hailing from Civic Center Media in association with MRC Television. Directed by Michael Showalter ("The Big Sick," "The Lovebirds") and based on the script by Emmy, Golden Globe, BAFTA, WGA Award winner Georgia Pritchett ("Succession," "Veep"), "The Shrink Next Door" is a dark comedy inspired by true events that detail the bizarre relationship between psychiatrist to the stars Dr. Isaac "Ike" Herschkopf, played by Paul Rudd, and his longtime patient Martin "Marty" Markowitz, played by Will Ferrell. Over the course of their relationship, the all-too-charming Ike slowly takes over Marty's life, even moving into Marty's Hamptons home and taking over his family business. The series explores how a seemingly normal doctor-patient dynamic morphs into an unprecedentedly exploitative relationship filled with manipulation, power grabs and dysfunction at its finest.
