It’s always a fun time when two comedic actors star alongside each other.
We loved it when Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd joined forces in Anchorman and Anchorman 2, and now we can see them get up to shenanigans again in their latest project, due for release soon on Apple TV+.
Except it won’t be the fun and light-hearted kind that we are used to.
The Shrink Next Door, directed by Michael Showalter (Wet, Hot, American Summer), will be dark and twisted and based on a true-crime podcast of the same name.
You could easily just Google some key details and find out everything that will happen in this limited series, but that would spoil any fun that can be had when it comes to a patient’s disturbing dependence on their psychologist.
Without giving any more than that away, here’s more from AV Club:
The short version is that Will Ferrell is a guy named Marty and Paul Rudd is a therapist (Dr Isaac Herschkopf) who takes a… particular interest in Marty’s life.
The series will take place over the course of three decades, detailing how Marty first begins to open up to the doctor and then how he gradually starts to depend on him.
It will also detail Ferrell’s increasingly disheveled facial hair and Rudd’s mildly distracting accent, though those probably won’t be major plot points.
The series also has some interesting female leads, with Kathryn Hahn as Marty’s sister and Casey Wilson as Dr Herschkopf’s wife.
Let’s take a look, shall we?
The first three episodes of the eight-episode series will premiere on Apple TV+ on November 12, with new ones coming weekly after that.
