Disney’s FX has announced a brand new half-hour limited series, “The Patient”, which is being created by Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg, who are the creative duo behind FX’s acclaimed drama “The Americans”. The series will star Steve Carell, who will also be an executive producer with Caroline Moore and Victor Hsu, along with Fields and Weisberg.
A psychological thriller from the minds of Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg (The Americans); a psychotherapist finds himself held prisoner by a serial killer with an unusual request: curb his homicidal urges. But unwinding the mind of this man while also dealing with the waves of his own repressed troubles creates a journey perhaps as treacherous as his captivity.
Steve Carell will play “Alexander Strauss,” a psychiatrist who has recently lost his wife. Behind his cerebral, sensitive exterior, he has yet to plumb the depths of his own pain and loss.
Eric Schrier, President, FX Entertainment said:
“We are excited that Joe and Joel are back with their next series for FX after the great experience of working with them on six amazing seasons of The Americans,” Their creative instincts and mastery of plot and character are on display again with The Patient, which will showcase Steve Carell’s remarkable talents as an actor, producer and creative collaborator.”
The new 10-episode limited series will be produced by FX Productions. So we should expect to see the series available on Hulu in the United States and as a Star Original on Disney+ internationally.
