FX Picks Up Limited Series 'The Patient' Starring Steve Carell

FX has today given a series order to the original half-hour limited series The Patient starring Steve Carell (The Morning Show, Space Force). The season will produce 10 episodes.

The psychological thriller centers on a psychotherapist (Carell) who finds himself held prisoner by a serial killer with an unusual request: curb his homicidal urges. But unwinding the mind of this man while also dealing with the waves of his own repressed troubles creates a journey perhaps as treacherous as his captivity.

The Americans showrunners Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields created the series. They will executive produce with Carell, Caroline Moore and Victor Hsu. FX Productions will produce.

"We are excited that Joe and Joel are back with their next series for FX after the great experience of working with them on six amazing seasons of The Americans," said Eric Schrier, President, FX Entertainment. "Their creative instincts and mastery of plot and character are on display again with The Patient, which will showcase Steve Carell's remarkable talents as an actor, producer and creative collaborator."
