The Shrink Next Door will premiere on Apple TV+ on November 12th. Surprisingly, the Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd vehicle is one of two upcoming shows centered on unethical psychiatrists that will be available on the streaming service.
Shrinking, a new series starring Jason Segel as a therapist who tells his patients exactly what he thinks, received a 10-episode order from Apple TV+ this week.
Bill Lawrence, co-creator of Ted Lasso, and Brett Goldstein, who plays Roy Kent in the popular comedy series, will write and produce the new show with Segel.
It’s an intriguing move for a company that, despite some recent successes, is still one of the streaming space’s newer players, still building out its lineup and seeing what works.
As usual, the company appears to be taking the approach of giving established talent the runway to create what they believe people will want to watch.
