Harrison Ford to Star in Upcoming Apple TV+ Series 'Shrinking' Alongside Jason Segel

Actor Harrison Ford has signed on to star in upcoming Apple TV+ series "Shrinking," which comes from actor Jason Segel, "Ted Lasso" co-creator Bill Lawrence, and "Ted Lasso" star and writer Brett Goldstein, who plays Roy Kent on the series.

Ford will star alongside Jason Segel, who has a main role in the show. The 10-episode comedy series will see Segel playing a grieving therapist who begins to break the rules and tell his clients what he really thinks of them. "Ignoring his training and ethics, he finds himself making huge, tumultuous changes to people's lives ... including his own," reads the series description.

According to Deadline, Ford will play Dr. Phil Rhodes, a down-to-earth "blue collar shrink" who has built a successful practice over the years. Phil has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson's, which "forces him out of his comfort zone as he grapples with intrusive friends, his estranged family and his legacy."

Ford has done little television during his career, and this will be his first regular TV role. In recent years, he has starred in "Blade Runner 2049," "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker," and "The Call of the Wild." He is also working on a fifth "Indiana Jones" film.

"Shrinking" is written by Segel, who also stars in Apple TV+ movie "The Sky is Everywhere," based on the best-selling young adult novel of the same name.

They need something off the charts to pull Apple TV out of the crapper. This sounds good though, Harrison usually doesn't do garbage (except The Mosquito Coast. And Hollywood Homicide. And Firewall) but he usually does good stuff.

Apple TV+ is great! great shows and movies are on the way. But I feel like it needs an instant classic! it needs something that it still doesn't have.
I feel like the first ever streaming service film to win an Oscar (and win 3, including Best Picture, no less) kinda sorta fills that, lol.

No one will be subscribing to Apple TV+ because of that Oscar. They need something on the level of Game of Thrones or Stranger Things or The Mandalorian.
Looks like people have by 25%. Whether they will keep it is another matter, but the more exposure Apple TV+ has, the better for the service as more people will try it.
