'Shrinking': Apple TV+ comedy-drama starring Jason Segel and Harrison Ford promises a fun ride
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: The new AppleTV+ series 'Shrinking' brings together two great actors in a drama that revolves around love, loss, and therapy. The 3-minute-long trailer shows Jason Segel grieving his wife's death. The 'How I Met Your Mother' star plays a therapist who is finding ways to find meaning.
Harrison Ford also stars in the show as Dr Phil Rhodes, a calm, collected therapist who shares a practice with Jimmy (Jason Segel) and Gaby (Jessica Williams). The upcoming AppleTV+ comedy-drama is written by Jason Segel, Brett Goldstein, and Bill Lawrence. The trailer appears to show Jason Segel's character going off the rails as a therapist and breaking every rule ever written in the book of therapy.
'Shrinking' is planned as a 10-episode comedy drama. The 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' alum is seen as a therapist who sleeps in the middle of a session and comes up with a bizarre idea to cure his patients. He starts telling them exactly how he feels about their situations, instead of letting them make their own decisions.
The trailer promises a fun ride, though tinged with sadness. The show stars Jason Segel, Harrison Ford, Christa Miller, Jessica Williams, Michael Urie, Luke Tennie, and Lukita Maxwell.
“It follows a grieving therapist (played by Segel) who starts to break the rules and tell his clients exactly what he thinks,” 'Shrinking's synopsis states. It adds, “Ignoring his training and ethics, he finds himself making huge, tumultuous changes to people’s lives…including his own.”
