Apple TV+ will today premiere the highly anticipated, eight-episode limited series, The Shrink Next Door.

The new dark comedy features a star-studded cast led by Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd, who also serve as executive producers.

Inspired by true events, “The Shrink Next Door” details the bizarre relationship between psychiatrist to the stars Dr. Isaac “Ike” Herschkopf (played by Rudd) and his longtime patient Martin “Marty” Markowitz (played by Ferrell).

Over the course of their relationship, the all-too-charming Ike slowly inserts himself into Marty’s life, even moving into Marty’s Hamptons home and persuading Marty to name him president of the family business.

The series also stars Kathryn Hahn as ‘Phyllis,’ Marty’s younger sister, and Casey Wilson as ‘Bonnie’ the wife of Dr. Herschkopf.

Directed by Michael Showalter and Jesse Peretz, and based on the script by Emmy, Golden Globe, BAFTA, WGA Award winner Georgia Pritchett, “The Shrink Next Door” hails from Civic Center Media in association with MRC Television. The series is based on the #1 new podcast of 2019 by Wondery and Bloomberg Media.
