Everything looks fine… until you see the bigger picture. Today Apple TV+ give us a glimpse into one of their Autumn highlights with a Teaser Trailer to The Shrink Next Door starring Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd.
The dark comedy apparently based on a Podcast, a crazy tale of a psychiatrist (Rudd) who bizarrely gets involved more and more in his long-time patient’s life (Ferrell). The deeper he got and more vulnerable the patients he exploited them for his own personal gain.
Many will be excited to see the Anchorman duo team up once again for something comedic. You don’t get to see much of Rudd’s character’s darker side, more setting up the time period (1970’s). The pair might be know for their totally bonkers comedic style this one is a little more restrained. Nonetheless we’re intrigue to see more of this series…
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 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 as ‘Phyllis,’ Marty’s younger sister, and Casey Wilson as ‘Bonnie’ the wife of Dr. Herschkopf.
The series also includes Kathryn Hahn, Casey Wilson, Gable Swanlund, Sarayu Blue, and Kesia Brooke.
The Shrink Next Door, will be premiering globally from Friday, 12th November on Apple TV+.
