The Shrink Next Door Creator Georgia Pritchett on the Wild True Story

With The Shrink Next Door now streaming on AppleTV+, I recently got to speak with creator and screenwriter Georgia Pritchett about making the limited series. If you haven’t seen the trailer or heard the wild true story it’s based on, the eight-episode series explores the bizarre relationship between Martin “Marty” Markowitz (Will Ferrell) and his psychiatrist Dr. Isaac “Ike” Herschkopf (Paul Rudd). Over the course of their series, we see how a seemingly normal doctor-patient dynamic morphs into something far more sinister when Herschkopf inserts himself into every part of Marty’s life. The series also stars Kathryn Hahn as Phyllis, Marty’s younger sister, and Casey Wilson as Bonnie, the wife of Dr. Herschkopf. The series is directed by Michael Showalter and Jesse Peretz.

During the interview, Georgia Pritchett talked about the way Dr. Herschkopf uses small moments to gradually take over Marty’s life, what people would be surprised to learn about the making of the series, how they decided on eight episodes, why she loved telling the story on AppleTV+, what it was like in the editing room, the toughest stuff to pull off with the time and budget, and more.
