What is Shrinking about?
Jason Segel created Shrinking with Bill Lawrence and Brett Goldstein, the writers and producers of Ted Lasso. On Shrinking, Segel stars as Jimmy Laird, a therapist who has been experiencing crippling depression since his wife's death, ignoring his teenage daughter Alice (Lukita Maxwell) and having his neighbor Liz (Christa Miller) parent her while he goes through the motions of life in a daze. To the dismay of his colleagues, played by Jessica Williams and Harrison Ford, he starts offering his patients brutally honest and often inappropriate advice on how to change their lives and, despite everyone’s misgivings, his patients actually start to see results.
The stellar cast is rounded out by Michael Urie and loads of guest stars including sitcom mainstay Ted McGinley, Wendie Malick, Saturday Night Live’s Heidi Gardner and Lily Rabe.
