Apple TV+ Orders Comedy ‘Shrinking’ From Jason Segel & ‘Ted Lasso’ Team

Apple TV+ has given a series order to Shrinking, a 10-episode comedy series that will star Jason Segel, who also serves as writer and executive producer, alongside Emmy Award winners Bill Lawrence and Brett Goldstein, the team behind the multi-award-winning global hit phenomenon ‘Ted Lasso’.

‘Shrinking’ follows a grieving therapist (Segel) who starts to break the rules and tell his clients exactly what he thinks. Ignoring his training and ethics, he finds himself making huge, tumultuous changes to people’s lives… including his own.

The new series will be produced by Warner Bros. Television, where Lawrence is under an overall deal, and Lawrence’s Doozer Productions. Segel, Lawrence and Goldstein all serve as writers and executive producers, Jeff Ingold is an executive producer, and Liza Katzer is a co-executive producer.

‘Shrinking’ marks the second Apple Original starring Segel, who is next set to star in Apple Original Films’ highly anticipated ‘The Sky is Everywhere’ based on the best-selling YA novel of the same name. It also marks the third partnership for Apple, Lawrence, and Warner Bros. Television, alongside ‘Ted Lasso’ and the recently announced series order for ‘Bad Monkey’, starring Vince Vaughn. Segel is, of course, best known for his role on hit comedy ‘How I Met Your Mother’, along with films such as ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ and ‘The Muppets’. Most recently he created and starred in the AMC series ‘Dispatches from Elsewhere’.

Goldstein currently stars and serves as writer & co-executive producer on ‘Ted Lasso’, which recently broke records as the most-nominated freshman comedy in Emmy history, and landed a total of seven Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Goldstein and Outstanding Comedy Series. Alongside ‘Ted Lasso’, Bill Lawrence is the man behind a string of comedy hits such as ‘Spin City’, ‘Scrubs’, and ‘Cougar Town’.

The series will join the ever-growing list of Apple TV+ Original hits and award-winning shows including ‘Mythic Quest’, ‘Dickinson’, ‘Central Park’, ‘SEE’, ‘For All Mankind’, ‘Foundation’ and ‘The Morning Show’. Their latest edition, due to land on 12th November, is the highly-anticipated ‘The Shrink Next Door’, starring Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Kathryn Hahn and Casey Wilson.

Shrinking‘ does not yet have a premiere date, but if you want to keep track of this or any other show, you can add it via our Never Miss system, and you’ll be notified when it gets a UK premiere date.
