Apple TV+ has released the official Mr. Corman trailer for their newest comedy series, starring Emmy winner Joseph Gordon-Levitt in his first major TV project as the lead. The series is scheduled to make its debut on Friday, August 6, with the first two episodes releasing, followed by one new episode weekly every Friday.
The video, which you can check out below, features Gordon-Levitt as a fifth-grade teacher dealing with an existential crises. He questions everything he has done while pondering what could have been if his music career had gone the way he wanted it to.
Mr. Corman follows the days and nights of Josh Corman, an artist at heart but not by trade. A career in music hasn’t panned out, and he teaches fifth grade at a public school in the San Fernando Valley. His ex-fiancé Megan has moved out, and his high school buddy Victor has moved in. He knows he has a lot to be thankful for, but finds himself struggling nevertheless through anxiety, loneliness and a sinking suspicion that he sucks as a person. Darkly funny, oddly beautiful and deeply heartfelt, this relatable dramedy speaks for our contemporary generation of 30-somethings: rich with good intentions, poor with student loans, and yearning to become real grown-ups sometime before they die.
Joining Gordon-Levitt in the 10-episode series are Arturo Castro, Debra Winger, Bobby Hall aka Logic, Alexander Jo, Juno Temple, Jamie Chung, Shannon Woodward and Hector Hernandez.
Mr. Corman is created, written, and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who is also serving as an executive producer through his HitRecord Films banner. It is executive produced by Bruce Eric Kaplan, Ravi Nandan, and Inman Young, with Pamela Harvey-White serving as producer.
