Apple has revealed the new, full length trailer for ‘The Shrink Next Door’, starring Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Kathryn Hahn and Casey Wilson. The highly-anticipated series, which consists of eight episodes, arrives on TV+ next month.

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.

Ferrell and Rudd also serve as executive producers on the show, which is based on the script by Georgia Pritchett (‘Succession’, ‘Veep’) and directed by Michael Showalter (‘The Big Sick’). It will debut globally with three episodes and new episodes will premiere weekly.

premieres Friday November 12th on Apple TV+ with the first three episodes. A new episode premieres every subsequent Friday.
