The new trailer for the limited series offers an exclusive two-minute preview of the show. The series is directed by Michael Showalter and Jesse Peretz and based on the script by Georgia Pritchett. Ferrell and Rudd also serve as executive producers, along with Jessica Elbaum and Brittney Segal.

The Shrink Next Door is based on a 2019 podcast of the same name, telling a story of a psychiatrist, Dr. Isaac ‘Ike’ Herschkopf (Paul Rudd), and his long-term patient Martin ‘Marty’ Markowitz (Will Ferrell). The project will bring Rudd and Ferrell on-screen together first time since Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues in 2013.

Inspired by true events and an original podcast of the same name, “The Shrink Next Door” follows the decades-long manipulation and exploitation by psychiatrist Dr. Isaac “Ike” Herschkopf (Paul Rudd) and his longtime patient Martin “Marty” Markowitz (Will Ferrell). Dr. Ike is accompanied by his unsuspecting wife Bonnie Herschkopf (Casey Wilson) and though Marty may be defenseless against Dr. Ike’s enticing offerings, his hard-headed sister Phyllis (Kathryn Hahn) is not.

According to Apple, the initial three episodes of The Shrink Next Door will premiere globally on Apple TV+ on November 12, and the remaining five episodes will be released every Friday.
