"The Shrink Next Door," the new dramedy series starring Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd, has made its worldwide debut on Apple TV+.

The series tells the true story of a 30-year abusive relationship between a patient and his therapist.

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.

Directed by Michael Showalter ("The Big Sick," "The Eyes of Tammy Faye") and Jesse Peretz ("High Fidelity," "GLOW"), and based on the script by Emmy, Golden Globe, BAFTA, WGA Award winner Georgia Pritchett ("Succession"), "The Shrink Next Door" hails from Civic Center Media in association with MRC Television. The series is based on the No. 1 new podcast of 2019 by Wondery and Bloomberg Media.
