There is no information on when the series will go on floors or hit the platform
Jason Segel will be writing and executive producing the Apple TV+ series Shrinking, along with Ted Lasso co-creator Bill Lawrence and Roy Kent himself, Brett Goldstein. Apart from these roles, Segel will also be playing the lead character, a grieving therapist who is done treating his patients ethically and starts telling how he really feels about them.
Shrinking will be the second Apple Original project from Segel, as he will star in the film adaptation of the YA novel The Sky is Everywhere, from Shirley director Josephine Decker. Segel will also star in the film Windfall with Lily Collins and Jesse Plemons, and Adam McKay's Lakers project.
The massive success of Ted Lasso has made Apple TV+add Lawrence and Goldstein to this project too. Lawrence is also writing and executive producing Bad Monkey, a series adaptation of Carl Hiaasen's book of the same name, starring Vince Vaughn. In addition to that, Lawrence is also working on reboots of both Head of the Class and Clone High.
Meanwhile, Goldstein recently won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series at the Emmys for his role as Roy Kent on Ted Lasso, for which he is also a writer and co-producer.
