Jason Segel is set to star in upcoming Apple TV+ series "Shrinking," Apple announced today. Segel is writing and executive producing the show alongside "Ted Lasso" co-creator Bill Lawrence and "Ted Lasso" star and writer Brett Goldstein, who plays Roy Kent on the series.

The 10-episode comedy series will feature Segel playing a therapist who begins to break the rules and tells 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 show's description.

Segel is starring in upcoming Apple TV+ movie "The Sky is Everywhere," based on the best-selling young adult novel of the same name, so this is his second Apple TV+ project. He's also somewhat famous at MacRumors as he is a fan and mentioned the site in the DVD commentary for "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." "I love MacRumors.com," he said. "It's tomorrow's Mac news today."

"Shrinking" is a promising upcoming TV+ series as it is coming from some of the team behind "Ted Lasso." "Ted Lasso" has thus far won multiple awards, and it is one of the headline shows on Apple TV+. There is no word yet on when "Shrinking" will debut.

WTF? How is it the first I'm hearing of this?!

EDIT: It's sorta hilarious to hear the convo between him and Mila Kunis talking about how to do that difference matte effect in Photo Booth before mentioning MR.

I have recently watched such great shows like Mare of Easttown, Squid Game, Unbelievable, The Queen’s Gambit, Harlots, The Boys, etc. All from Netflix, HBO, Amazon, and Hulu.

Users here tend to trash these services because supposedly their catalogue is filled with crap, but I have never found anything as captivating or entertaining on Apple TV+.

Did anyone else read the title and think that the possibility of him being casted is shrinking from the producers?

Since its the producers of Ted Lasso will this also be a giant Apple commercial? It was hilarious to me that the season finale of Ted started with him using a new iPhone for like 3-4 minutes.

😳 OMG

Um.. Jason if by any chance you're reading this.. I am genuinely glad you got this job, happy for you. Whatever dumb "tier" of a celebrity or actor you are, as if such things mattered. 🤣 Ultimately it's just meaningless categorizing.

It's been a long time since I've seen the Sarah Marshall movie, I barely remember it tbh. 😬
