What is Mr. Corman about?

Mr. Corman follows the story of Josh Corman, an aspiring and self-perceived failed musician who appears to be on the verge of a midlife crisis.

He is struggling with anxiety, the feeling of failure whilst trying to balance his happiness and dreams.

The series takes a deep dive into the life of Josh, his friends, his family, his highs and lows as he falls headfirst into everything from awkward sexual encounters to full-scale panic attacks.

The synopsis for the series reads: "Mr. Corman follows the days and nights of Josh Corman (played by Gordon-Levitt), 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 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."
