Joseph Gordon-Levitt is heading to Apple for his next project, a teacher series called Mr. Corman.
The half-hour comedy drama, produced by A24, follows a public school teacher in the San Fernando Valley, as he goes through his day-to-day life.
Gordon-Levitt will not only star in the show as the eponymous Mr. Corman but also write, direct and executive produce the project. While it has not yet formally been announced, Deadline reports that a writers room is already up and running and producing scripts for the series.
The series marks a return to the small screen for Gordon-Levitt, who first win viewers’ hearts with his role ok NBC’s 3rd Rock from the Sun. It also marks a continuing shift to behind the camera, after the actor made his directorial debut with Don Jon in 2013.
Word of the series comes as Apple prepares to launch its subscription streaming offering, Apple TV+, and also cancelled its first project: the Richard Gere drama Bastards.
