Joseph Gordon-Levitt Developing 'Mr. Corman' TV Show for Apple

Apple has inked a deal for an upcoming TV series called "Mr. Corman" written and executive produced by actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, reports Variety.

The drama series follows an elementary school teacher "grappling with adulthood" in Los Angeles. It's not known if Gordon-Levitt also plans to star in the series.


Joseph Gordon-Levitt is known for the long-running TV series "3rd Rock from the Sun" along with movies like "500 Days of Summer," "Inception," "50/50," "Looper," "and "The Dark Knight Rises."

Apple has dozens of original films and television shows in the works for its upcoming Apple TV+ streaming service, which is set to launch this fall.

There's no specific launch date available yet, but rumors suggest Apple is aiming to debut the service in November. Pricing is also unclear, but there has been speculation that Apple will charge $9.99 per month for Apple TV+.

So far, all these AppleTV+ shows sound really boring to me. I really hope they come up with something more worthwhile.

It seems like Apple is trying to produce content that would play in the waiting room of purgatory, preferably muted.

Kind of looks like something from one of those SNL stills that they use when exiting to or returning from a commercial.

Show premise: Joseph Gordon Levitt and G. Gordon Liddy transmogrify in twin transporters teleporting television transmissions. The resulting character, originally named G. Joseph Gordon Levitt Liddy is an elementary school teacher grappling with the sudden loss of hair on his head and a massive mustache attached to his face. Character's name changed to Corman because G. Joseph Gordon Levitt Liddy wouldn't fit on the nameplate outside the classroom.

Well, you'd all be laughing if I had enough skill with Photoshop to remove Levitt's hair and put Liddy's bald head and mustache on Levitt's face. Dammit! Where's [USER=256215]@AngerDanger[/USER] when you need him.

All these AppleTV shows are sounding very bland and safe. Spielbergs time has passed, the original Amazing Stories was ordinary.

Really? So a reboot of Amazing Stories with Steven Spielberg producing doesn't appeal? Or See, a futuristic, post-apocalyptic drama? For All Mankind imagines the space race if the Soviets made it to the moon first? Servant, produced by M. Night Shamalan, no interest there either? How about Prehistoric Planet, imagining the earth in the final days of the dinosaurs?

Checking out the list of shows ('https://www.macworld.com/article/3245534/list-of-apple-tv-plus-shows-and-series-news-actors-trailers-release-dates.html') thought to be in production, which include thrillers, sci fi, action, comedy, lots of things that are so obviously not simply PG as the trolls keep claiming, there really isn't anything that appeals to you? Hey, everyone to their own tastes, but that's a whole variety of shows to find "really boring."

My biggest question is how many of these can possibly be completed in time for the expected fall launch of Apple TV +? I make films and television for a living and it takes a long time to get anything from concept to delivery (many, many months if not years) and I don't see how Apple can possible have more than a half dozen things ready in the timeline given. Would Apple really launch a streaming service for $9.99/month with so little programming, especially given the streaming service competition out there? I feel there is a big piece of the puzzle missing here. Hopefully we will know in a few days.

I feel line one of his most underrated movies is “Premium Rush”, which is basically high speed chases through a city but on a bike. It’s pretty badass.
