Dr Ike is accompanied by his unsuspecting wife Bonnie Herschkopf (Casey Wilson) and while Marty may be helpless against the tantalizing offers of Dr Ike, his hard-headed sister Phyllis (Kathryn Hahn) is not.
Directed by Michael Showalter (“The Big Sick”, “The Eyes of Tammy Faye”) and Jesse Peretz (“High Fidelity”, “GLOW”), and based on the screenplay by award winning Emmy, Golden Globe, BAFTA WGA Georgia Pritchett (âSuccessionâ), âThe Shrink Next Doorâ originated from Civic Center Media in association with MRC Television.

In addition to playing the lead role, Ferrell and Rudd are also executive producers on the project.
