  • The series will star Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt is about to make his debut on Apple TV+.

The actor, known for his roles in "The Dark Knight Rises," "100 Days of Summer," and "Inception," is coming to Apple TV+ with a new comedy series. Gordon-Levitt is both directing and starring in "Mr. Corman," a ten-episode comedy series that will debut on Apple's streaming service on Friday, August 6, 2021. Apple says that the first three episodes will premiere on that date with another episode being released every week after.

"Mr. Corman" follows the days and nights of Josh Corman, played by Gordon-Levitt, 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.

In addition to Gordon-Levitt, "Mr. Corman" stars Arturo Castro, Debra Winger, Bobby Hall a.k.a. Logic, Alexander Jo, Juno Temple, Jamie Chung, Shannon Woodward and Hector Hernandez. The series marks a return to TV for Gordon-Levitt, who grew up on the small screen with roles on multiple series, most notably his co-starring turn on the long-running NBC comedy "3rd Rock from the Sun."

Produced for Apple TV+ by A24, "Mr. Corman" is created by, directed by and executive produced by Joseph Gordon Levitt along with Bruce Eric Kaplan, Ravi Nandan and Inman Young. Pamela Harvey-White serves as producer.
