Harrison Ford will star in his first major television series in “Shrinking.”

The “Star Wars” star will lead the upcoming AppleTV+ series with Jason Segel, who will executive produce the show along with Bill Lawrence and Brett Goldstein.

The 79-year-old actor plays Dr. Phil Rhodes, a smart and ardently self-reliant therapist, considered a “blue-collar therapist” and a legend in the therapeutic approach called cognitive-behavioral therapy. However, after developing a successful practice with his two mentors Jimmy and Gaby, Phil was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a condition that causes tremors and slows down his work.

The show – which is hosted by Warner Bros. Television Studios and Bill’s Doozer Productions – centers on Jason playing his colleague, a grieving therapist who loses faith, breaks ethics, and tells his patients exactly what he’s thinking. After throwing his training out the window, the therapist finds himself making meaningful changes in others and in his own life.

Another highly anticipated project from the movie legend is the fifth installment in the ‘Indiana Jones’ franchise, but director James Mangold – who took over from Steven Spielberg – has asked fans to be “patient” during post-production. .

Last month, the 58-year-old filmmaker tweeted, “Although I cut during filming, I officially start editing INDY today!”

“To anyone asking about trailers and teasers, drops and first looks and other sneak peeks or previews, this is the right place to look for information, but just a little too soon. well and be patient!”

The film – which also stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen and Antonio Banderas – is said to have prompted Harrison to adopt a “strict” health regimen.

An unnamed source said ‘A source said: ‘It’s amazing. He seems to live a very strict routine. You can set your watch by the things it does at the same time every day. It’s waking up, lunch, a very long bike ride, then he’s on the set from 6 p.m. “He then returns to the hotel around 5 a.m. This regimen of exercise and work would be a punishment for a man who is half his age. It’s true dedication.”
