These days, it’s not easy to sneak projects in below the radar. With the internet and social media, someone is always watching for news, and someone is always leaking rumors. It’s nearly impossible to keep projects under wraps or prevent spoilers from emerging, especially when there are high-profile stars involved.
Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd are pretty high-profile, so it’s an accomplishment that this is just about the first time we’ve heard about their new project. It’s called The Shrink Next Door, and it’s a new miniseries for Apple TV+.
It’s based on a podcast of the same name, and it stars Rudd as a psychiatrist who starts to insert himself into the life of one of his patients, played by Ferrell. Sounds sort of like What About Bob? in reverse, and, judging by the trailer, much, much darker.
Ferell and Rudd aren’t exactly looking their best, and they’ve got Kathryn Hahn and Casey Wilson along for the ride. The Shrink Next Door hits Apple TV+ in November.
Check out the trailer, which lacks the absurdist hijinks Ferrell and Rudd typically get up to together, but at least there are a lot of enormous glasses!
