AppleTV+ Announces Premiere Date for Limited Series 'The Shrink Next Door' Starring Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd

AppleTV+ has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original limited series The Shrink Next Door starring Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd.

The 8-episode limited series will debut on Friday, November 12 with its first three episodes. New episodes will then be released weekly.

Inspired by true events, the series details the bizarre relationship between psychiatrist to the stars Dr. Isaac "Ike" Herschkopf (Rudd) and his longtime patient Martin "Marty" Markowitz (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 explores how a seemingly normal doctor-patient dynamic morphs into an exploitative relationship filled with manipulation, power grabs and dysfunction at its finest.

The series also stars Kathryn Hahn and Casey Wilson.

Georgia Pritchett developed the series. She executive produces with Ferrell, Rudd, Jessica Elbaum, Brittney Segal, Jordana Mollick, Marshall Lewy, Hernan Lopez, Aaron Hart, Jared Sandberg, Katie Boyce, Francesca Levy and director Michael Showalter. Joe Nocera serves as a co-executive producer. MRC Television, Civic Center Media, Gloria Sanchez Productions, Semi-Formal Productions and Bloomberg Media produce.
