Anchorman co-stars Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd are set to reunite for limited TV series The Shrink Next Door.

The show, which will air on MRC Television, is based on a popular 2019 podcast, which focused on the relationship between psychiatrist-to-the-stars Dr. Isaac Herschkopf and his longtime patient, Martin ‘Marty’ Markowitz.

Rudd will play the doctor and Ferrell his client.

Directed by The Big Sick filmmaker Michael Showalter from Georgia Pritchett’s script, the small screen venture will also be executive produced by Ferrell and Rudd. The funnymen were last seen onscreen together in the 2013 Anchorman sequel, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
