In the video, a therapist is taken hostage by a patient who later turns out to be a serial killer. On August 30, only Hulu will offer streaming access to the brief drama.
Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg are the writers and executive producers of The Patient. Along with Carell and Gleeson, the cast also includes Andrew Leeds, David Alan Grier, Laura Niemi, Alex Rich, and Linda Emond.
ACCORDING TO THE SYNOPSIS, THE SHOW CENTRES ON ALAN STRAUSS, A THERAPIST WHO IS IMPRISONED BY SAM FORTNER, A PATIENT WHO LATER REVEALS HIMSELF TO BE A SERIAL KILLER
With time running out, Alan struggles valiantly to stop Sam before Alan either becomes an accessory to Sam’s killings or, worse yet, turns becomes a target himself.
Carell, Caroline Moore, Victor Hsu, and Chris Long are the executive producers. FX Productions is the producer.
Steve Carell plays therapist Alan, who awakens shackled to an unusual bed as he continues to concentrate more on his dramatic side.
His most recent patient Sam, played by Domhnall Gleeson, has made the decision that he wants his sessions to be a little more private, so he kidnaps him and keeps him in his home.
Alan is charged with putting a stop to Sam, a serial murderer who wants to quit killing.
High-stakes therapy sessions with a violent psychopath make for a neat little premise for a contained thriller, and Fields and Weisberg make a strong effort not to swerve their series into easy schlock, keeping it all grounded and occasionally boring, a rational story about an insane person.
Instead of engaging in some Zodiac-level spree, Sam is more driven by small slights, such as an odd glance at work or perceived rudeness in a restaurant. Sam is a killer who can’t stop because society keeps pushing him to the brink.
It’s one of the program’s many realistic touches, like Sam’s obsession with the best new restaurants or Alan’s flashbacks to simmering family conflicts. With two complex people at its heart, who are introduced piece by piece by episode, this is a genre show that was thoughtfully and carefully crafted.
