According to a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter, FX has handed out a 10-episode order for a new, half-hour limited series called The Patient. The series will star Carell in the lead role, and be written by Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg, the duo behind The Americans and its stellar run for FX.

The report notes that The Patient will focus on a psychotherapist (Carell) who is tasked by a serial killer to help curb his urges. The series will then explore the steps the two go on to try and “fix” the killer, while Carell’s character also deals with his own repressed problems. Carell will play Alexander Strauss, a psychiatrist who recently lost his wife.

“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,” said FX entertainment president Eric Schrier. “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.”
