Joseph Gordon-Levitt signed on to participate in a new series called Mr. Corman way back in 2019. Since then, news went pretty quiet on that front for a long stretch. It wasn’t until May of this year that we learned the new series will premiere on Apple TV+ in August of this year.
And with the debut date rapidly approaching, Apple TV+ has finally given us the first trailer for the upcoming project. It’s billed as a dark comedy, and it will follow the main character, Josh Corman, as he goes through his daily life. It’s there that we learn that Mr. Corman is an artist at heart, but life hasn’t really made that dream become a reality.
Mr. Corman is set to premiere on Apple TV+ on August 6, 2021. You can check out the first official trailer for the new show just below.
Here’s how Apple describes the upcoming series:
Josh Corman, an artist at heart but not by trade. Things haven’t been going his way lately – his lifelong dream of a career in music didn’t pan out and he finds himself teaching fifth grade at a school in the San Fernando Valley, his ex-fiancé Megan has moved out and his high school buddy has moved in. Aware that he still has a lot to be thankful for, Josh struggles nevertheless through universal feelings of anxiety, loneliness and self-doubt. Darkly funny, oddly beautiful and deeply heartfelt, this relatable comedy-drama speaks for our contemporary generation of 30-somethings – rich with good intentions, poor with student loans and working to become grown-ups sometime before they’re senior citizens.
As is par for the course, Apple is offering up another show that will focus primarily on character development. That certainly appears to be the case with this one. As you can see from the trailer above, Mr. Corman stars Gordon-Levitt (500 Days of Summer, 50/50), Juno Temple (Ted Lasso), Jamie Chung (Big Hero 6), Shannon Woodward (Westworld), Alexander Jo, Hector Hernandez, Debra Winger (Terms of Endearment), and Bobby Hall a.k.a Logic.
After seeing the trailer, are you looking forward to checking out Mr. Corman premieres in early August? There will be a total of eight episodes in the limited season, so it’s not a particularly long jaunt, anyway.
