"The question is... what do you do now?"
'Mr. Corman' sees Joseph Gordon-Levitt star in a comedy/drama series which he also wrote, directed, and executive produced.
The 10-episode season will see the actor play the role of Josh Corman, who is a school teacher in his late-30s, struggling to deal with his anxiety. He's got a passion for music, but he's not living out this part of himself as much as he would have hoped. The darkly-humoured series will see him tackle his life in a way that he hasn't had before, which seemingly leads to some far-out daydreams.
In addition to Gordon-Levitt, the rest of the cast will be made up of Arturo Castro, Debra Winger, Bobby Hall aka Logic, Alexander Jo, Juno Temple, Jamie Chung, Shannon Woodward and Hector Hernandez.
'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.
The first two episodes of the 10-episode first season of 'Mr. Corman' will debut globally on Friday, August 6 on Apple TV+. A new episode will arrive weekly every Friday after that.
Here's the trailer.
