Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to write, direct, executive produce and star in Mr. Corman, a half-hour comedy-drama series at Apple, sources said. A writers room is up and running, producing scripts for the series.
Mr. Corman, from A24, is described as a deep cut into the days and nights of a public schoolteacher (Gordon-Levitt) in the San Fernando Valley.
This would mark a return to TV for Gordon-Levitt, who grew up on the small screen with roles on multiple series, most notably his co-starring turn on the long-running NBC comedy 3rd Rock from the Sun.
For the past two decades, Gordon-Levitt largely has been focused on features, earning Golden Globe nominations for his starring roles in (500) Days of Summer and 50/50. He made his feature writing-directing debut with the well received 2013 film Don Jon, in which he also starred.
Gordon-Levitt is repped by WME and Jackoway Austen Tyerman.
