Apple TV+ Shares First-Look at Comedy Series 'Mr. Corman' Ahead of August 6 Debut

Apple TV+ today released a "first look" featurette of "Mr. Corman," a dark comedy series created by, directed by, and starring Joseph Gordon Levitt.


"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 with anxiety, loneliness, and self-confidence issues.

The three-minute featurette sees the cast and crew discuss the show, and includes behind-the-scenes footage offering viewers a sense of Gordon-Levitt's creative production process.

"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," said Apple, in a press release for the upcoming show.

The first two episodes of the 10-episode first season will debut on August 6, followed by one new episode weekly every Friday.

Not a fan of episodes being released weekly, they should release the whole season, I'll be canceling my subscription once the free trial ends.
Having grown up with 'traditional' TV in the 1970s and '80s, I actually miss the anticipation of waiting for next week's episode of whatever, and each day of the week being partially defined by what was on TV that night.

I'm just happy it's an article about Apple TV that doesn't contain the words "Ted Lasso"... doing a search I stopped counting when I got to 60 separate articles with more and more showing...

Should be good if Joseph Gordon-Levitt is involved.
Great show that Ted Lasso ??

How did this ever get funded? Looks remarkably boring.

It's like early days of Netflix original content where they had to make quality shows to keep people coming.
