Apple TV dropped the trailer of its newest drama series starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mr Corman. 

“Raise your hand if you think you’re a lucky person”, is how the trailer starts with Levitt asking a class of fifth-graders.

Since his dream of becoming a musician didn’t work out, Levitt ends up becoming a public school teacher, Josh Corman at San Fernando Valley in this poignant dark comedy. His ex-fiance, Megan (Shannon Woodward) moves out of his home and his high school friend Victor (Arturo Castro) moves in with him. He deals with loneliness, anxiety and a crippling sense of realising that he “sucks as a person”.

Take a look at the artistic trailer below.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt who was last seen in the Academy Awards nominated film, The Trial of Chicago Seven, essaying the role of Richard Schultz, the assistant federal prosecutor, has directed, produced, written and acted in the upcoming series. Phew! Talk about doing everything yourself in a group project. 

The upcoming project also stars Juno Temple, Debra Winger, Jamie Chung, the rapper Logic (Bobby Hall) and Hector Hernandez. 

The series has been produced in collaboration with A24 with Levitt serving as the executive producer along with Bruce Eric Kaplan, Inman Young, Ravi Nandan and Nathan Reinhart. 

Apple TV+ hailed the series as “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 sometimes before they die.”

The ten-episode series is slated to release on August 6 on Apple TV+.
