Ted Lasso’s Bill Lawrence and Brett Goldstein team with star Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother) as co-creators of a poignant comedy that blends raw sentiment with wry irony. Segel is Jimmy Laird, a therapist still deep in grief after his wife died a year earlier. Jimmy’s newly unorthodox methods with his patients rankle his curmudgeonly boss (the great Harrison Ford) while causing ripple effects among those who know and care about him. The expert ensemble includes Michael Urie as Jimmy’s upbeat best friend and Christa Miller as the nosy neighbor who takes Jimmy’s disgruntled daughter Alice (Lukita Maxwell) under her wing. Shrinking has such affection for its funny, flawed characters that you may wish to book extra sessions.
