"Ford, who is joining Shrinking after lengthy negotiations, will play Dr. Phil Rhodes, a down-to earth, sharp as a tack 'blue collar shrink,' blunt but with an ever present twinkle. Phil is a pioneer in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy who has built a successful practice over the years that he shares with his two young proteges, Jimmy and Gaby. Fiercely independent, Phil has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, which forces him out of his comfort zone as he grapples with intrusive friends, his estranged family and his legacy."
DO YOU REMEMBER?: Hal Linden recalls working on Barney Miller, and why it worked:
"That was based on a very simple question: as a citizen, would you be willing to turn to a cop for help who behaved in anything but a realistic way. 'There was a lid on everything,' Linden says. 'You could never go too far just to get a laugh. You had to be a real police officer that could do his job. It’s a lesson that stuck with me for the rest of my television career in terms of what works, how far you can go or how far not to go.'”
