Joseph Gordon-Levitt Ponders His Luck in Mr. Corman Trailer (TV News Roundup)

Apple TV Plus released a trailer for “Mr. Corman,” a new comedy series created and directed by show star Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

The first two episodes of “Mr. Corman” will premiere on Aug. 6, with each episode thereafter releasing weekly on Friday. The series follows Josh Corman (Gordon-Levitt), a failed musician who teaches the fifth grade at a San Fernando Valley public school. With his ex-fiancé Megan (Juno Temple) moving out and his high school friend Victor (Arturo Castro) moving in, Josh has been struggling through bouts of anxiety and loneliness, manifesting, as seen in the trailer, as a burning ball of fire hurtling toward Earth.

The cast also includes Debra Winger, Bobby Hall (known as the rapper Logic), Alexander Jo, Jamie Chung, Shannon Woodward and Hector Hernandez. Gordon-Levitt executive produces alongside Bruce Eric Kaplan, Ravi Nandan and Inman Young. Pamela Harvey White serves as producer.
