Harrison Ford and Jason Segel in Apple TV+ comedy Shrinking
Harrison Ford built is reputation with Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark. He’s a movie star. So it’s kind of big deal that he’s doing a show on Apple TV+. But Apple’s streaming service has pulled in many other stars, like Ryan Reynolds, Jennifer Anniston and Chris Evans.

In addition to Harrison Ford and Jason Segel, the series stars Christa Miller, Jessica Williams, Michael Urie, Luke Tennie and Lukita Maxwell.
