What you need to know
- Apple TV+ show The Shrink Next Door premieres Friday, November 12.
- The real Martin "Marty" Markowitz, the unwitting star of the show, has been speaking about having his life turned into TV.
When Apple TV+ sees the premiere of the new limited series The Shrink Next Door tomorrow, there will be one person looking on with more interest than most. Martin "Marty" Markowitz, the unwitting star of the whole thing, is played by Will Ferrell as the cast tells the story of his life. According to a new report, Markowitz is "over the moon" at the idea of being the subject of the show.
For those unfamiliar, here's how Apple TV+ describes what will go down when we watch The Shrink Next Door.
Speaking as part of a larger Guardian piece about podcasts being turned into TV, Markowitz explains what went down when the cast flew out to speak to him ahead of filming.
Markowitz also asys he received a message from Ferrell, saying that he wasn't "100% sure" that Markowitz would be pleased with the way he was being portrayed. Whether that prophecy turned out to be accurate, the report doesn't say.
This is one show that I'm very much looking forward to checking out — and it could prove to be another Apple TV+ hit alongside the likes of Ted Lasso, The Morning Show, and others.
