"Mr. Corman," a 10-episode comedy series headed up by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, will premiere on Apple TV+ in August.

Set to debut on Aug. 6, the series follows Josh Corman, "an artist at heart but not by trade" played by Gordon-Levitt.

"A career in music hasn't panned out, and he teaches fifth grade at a public school in the San Fernando Valley. His ex-fiance 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 nevertheless through anxiety, loneliness and a sinking suspicion that he sucks as a person. 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.

Alongside Gordon-Levitt, the series will star Arturo Castro, Debra Winger, Bobby Hall a.k.a. Logic, Alexander Jo, Juno Temple, Jamie Chung, Shannon Woodward, and Hector Hernandez.

In addition to starring, Gordon-Levitt directs and executive produces the show, which he also created. Bruce Eric Kaplan, Ravi Nandan, and Inman Young serve as executive producers, while Pamela Harvey-White serves a producer. The studio is A24.

"Mr. Corman" marks a return to TV for Gordon-Levitt, who got his start on multiple series including "3rd Rock from the Sun."

The first three episodes air on Aug. 6, with new episodes scheduled to debut every Friday.
