Apple TV + dropped the ax on Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s comedy-drama series “Mr. Corman” after one season, making it the second show to be canceled in the service’s history.
Apple has given up on renewing “Mr. Corman” for a second year despite relatively positive reviews, reports Rock. In addition to acting, Gordon-Levitt created, wrote, directed and executive produced the show.
The half-hour series failed to enter the same transmission numbers as other scripted shows, the report said. Apple TV + features a strong line of original TV shows, including “Ted Lasso,” “Mystic Quest,” “Schmigadoon!” and “Physical,” which are all refurbished or “look good” for refurbishment, according to Rock.
Apple described him as “darkly funny, unusually handsome, and deeply cordial,” “Mr. Corman” tells the story of a fifth-grade public school teacher in the San Fernando Valley. With a music career that failed and an ex-fiancée who moved away only to be replaced by a high school friend, Josh struggles with anxiety, loneliness and self-doubt.
The debut episode aired on August 6, and the first – and only – season ended today.
Along with Gordon-Levitt starring Arturo Castro, Debra Winger, Bobby Hall aka Logic, Alexander Jo, Juno Temple, Jamie Chung, Shannon Woodward and Hector Hernandez.
Gordon-Levitt’s second Apple TV + project, the animated series “Wolfboy and the Factory of Everything,” aired on September 24th. All ten episodes are currently available for streaming.
The news of the cancellation comes nearly two months after Apple canceled “Little Voice,” a lyric drama produced by JJ Abrams and Sara Bareilles.
