While Apple’s TV+ service has scored a truly buzz-worthy comedy hit with Ted Lasso, it’ll no doubt be hoping for big things from Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s Mr. Corman, which features a character similarly assessing his life choices. Though from the look of this trailer, in darker fashion than the sports coach goes to. Take a gander…

The show follows the days and nights of Josh Corman (Gordon-Levitt), described as an artist at heart but not by trade. A career in music hasn’t panned out, and he teaches fifth grade at a public school in the San Fernando Valley. His ex-fiancé Megan (Juno Temple) has moved out, and his high school buddy Victor (Arturo Castro) 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…

With JGL creating the show and directing, Mr. Corman also features Debra Winger, Jamie Chung and Shannon Woodward. It’ll launch the first two episodes on Friday, 6 August.
