What happened to Dr. Isaac Herschkopf? ‘The Shrink Next Door,’ a new app from Apple, tells the wild story.
The Shrink Next Door, a new Apple TV Plus miniseries, follows the real-life relationship of former psychiatrist Isaac Herschkopf and his patient Martin “Marty” Markowitz. But where has Isaac Herschkopf vanished to?
Viewers will see how the relationship develops into something more than a doctor-patient bond in the miniseries. In real life, Herschkopf had to deal with the consequences of his interactions with some of his patients.
In 1981, Markowitz met Herschkopf, who later became his psychiatrist. Their sessions became more frequent, and their relationship grew so close that Markowitz eventually allowed Herschkopf to not only live in his Hamptons summer home, but also to run his business.
At Herschkopf’s urging, Markowitz gradually distanced himself from his sister and other people in his life.
