Paul Rudd and Will Ferrell are unrecognisable in the first teaser trailer for their new series The Shrink Next Door.

The Anchorman co-stars are teaming up again for the new Apple TV+ series, which was inspired by true events and details the relationship between psychiatrist to the stars Dr Isaac “Ike” Herschkopf (Rudd) and his long-time patient Martin “Marty” Markowitz (Ferrell).

In the clip, Marty is seen having a series of breakdowns over various things in his life, before Ike tells him proudly that he’s had “a breakthrough”.

Rudd and Ferrell both look very different to their usual selves with bouffant hair, moustaches and beards.

According to a synopsis, the eight-part series will show how the all-too-charming Ike slowly inserts himself into Marty’s life, even moving into his Hamptons home and persuading Marty to name him as president of the family business.

The dark comedy also stars Kathryn Hahn as Phyllis, Marty’s younger sister, and Casey Wilson as Bonnie, the wife of Dr Herschkopf.
