Actor Casey Wilson will star with Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd in The Shrink Next Door, an eight-episode series coming to Apple TV+, according to Variety. It’s based on the #1 new podcast of 2019 by Wondery and Bloomberg Media.
Here’s how the series is described: “Directed by Showalter (The Big Sick, The Lovebirds) based on a script by Pritchett (Succession, Veep), The Shrink Next Door is a dark comedy inspired by true events that detail the bizarre relationship between psychiatrist to the stars Dr. Isaac ‘Ike’ Herschkopf, played by Paul Rudd, and his longtime patient Martin “Marty” Markowitz, played by Will Ferrell.
Over the course of their relationship, the all-too-charming Ike slowly takes over Marty’s life, even moving into Marty’s Hamptons home and taking over his family business. The series explores how a seemingly normal doctor-patient dynamic morphs into an unprecedentedly exploitative relationship filled with manipulation, power grabs, and dysfunction at its finest.”
Kahn has worked with Ferrell and Rudd several times in the past, appearing with both in Anchorman, Ferrell in Step Brothers and Rudd in Our Idiot Brother and NBC’s Parks and Recreation.
Wilson will star as Bonnie, the wife of Dr. Herschkopf. The role reunites her with Hahn, with the two having appeared together on the HBO limited series Mrs. Fletcher. Wilson is also known for her starring role on the ABC sitcom Happy Endings, as well as shows like Black Monday, Saturday Night Live, and American Dad. On the film side, her roles include Gone Girl, The Disaster Artist, and Always Be My Maybe.
