The streamer’s new summer 2021 promo, which you can check out below, also offered sneak peeks at the upcoming new seasons of Apple TV+ originals such as The Morning Show, See, Ted Lasso, Truth Be Told, Trying and more along with the first footage of acclaimed coming-of-age drama film CODA, which won the major awards in this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
Starring Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd and Kathryn Hahn, The Shrink Next Door is a dark comedy miniseries inspired by true events that detail the bizarre relationship between psychiatrist to the stars Dr. Isaac “Ike” Herschkopf and his longtime patient Martin “Marty” Markowitz. The series will explore how a seemingly normal doctor-patient dynamic morphs into an unprecedentedly exploitative relationship filled with manipulation, power grabs, and dysfunction at its finest.
Mr. Corman marks the first major TV project of Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the lead. It is a half-hour long dramedy which follows the story of a teacher in the San Fernando Valley who is still coming to grips with adulthood.
Based on Isaac Asimov’s iconic sci-fi novels that inspired films like Star Wars, the series will chronicle the thousand-year saga of The Foundation, a band of exiles who discover that the only way to save the Galactic Empire from destruction is to defy it. It will star Lee Pace and Jared Harris.
CODA (an acronym for Child of Deaf Adults) centers around 17-year-old Ruby, who is the sole hearing member of a deaf family. Her life revolves around acting as an interpreter for her parents and working on the family’s struggling fishing boat every day before school with her father and older brother. But when Ruby joins her high school’s choir club, she discovers a gift for singing and soon finds herself drawn to her duet partner Miles. Encouraged by her enthusiastic, tough-love choirmaster to apply to a prestigious music school, Ruby finds herself torn between the obligations she feels to her family and the pursuit of her own dreams.
The film stars Emilia Jones, Eugenio Derbez, and Oscar winner Marlee Matlin. It won multiple major awards at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, including U.S. Grand Jury Prize and U.S. Dramatic Audience Award.
