Written and executive produced by Jason Segel and Ted Lasso’s Bill Lawrence, the upcoming Apple TV+ original ‘Shrinking’ will star Harrison Ford opposite Jason Segel in the 10-episode comedy series, Deadline reports.
Produced by Warner Bros. Television, Shrinking follows a grieving therapist (Segel) who starts to break the rules and tell his clients exactly what he thinks. Ford will play Dr. Phil Rhodes, a down-to-earth sharp as a tack “blue-collar shrink,” blunt but with an ever-present twinkle.
Phil is a pioneer in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy who has built a successful practice over the years that he shares with his two young proteges, Jimmy and Gaby.
Fiercely independent, Phil has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, which forces him out of his comfort zone as he grapples with intrusive friends, his estranged family, and his legacy.
Shrinking will release exclusively on Apple TV+ on an unannounced date.
