Shrinking: Jason Segel, Brett Goldstein team up for Apple TV+ comedy

Jason Segel and Brett Goldstein are teaming up with Bill Lawrence for Shrinking, a new comedy for Apple TV+.
The 10-episode series will star Jason Segel, who also serves as writer and executive producer alongside Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Ted Lasso) and Brett Goldstein (Ted Lasso). It follows a grieving therapist (played by 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 will all serve as writers and executive producers, with Jeff Ingold serving as executive producer and Liza Katzer as co-executive producer.
Shrinking marks the second Apple Original starring Segel, who is next set to star in Apple Original Films’ The Sky is Everywhere, based on the best-selling 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.
