"Teachers, we love and appreciate you. We hope you'll love #MrCorman, premiering August 6 on Apple TV+," the streaming service tweeted Monday.

Gordon-Levitt serves as writer, director, executive producer and star. The actor plays the titular Mr. Corman, a public school teacher in California's San Fernando Valley.

In a video Monday, Gordon-Levitt expressed his gratitude to real-life teachers.

"It's Teacher Appreciation Week ... and I just wanted to say thank you to all the teachers out there. It's such a true art being a great teacher," he said.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gordon-Levitt said his character is a teacher who is an "artist at heart."

"He's not getting to do his art for a living; he's teaching fifth grade," the actor said. "He loves teaching, but he also wrestles with the insecurities that come with being an artist, wondering, 'Am I good, is my art meaningful, am I just kidding myself, am I bad, am I stupid, am I meaningless?'"

Mr. Corman will mark Gordon-Levitt's return to television. The actor previously starred on 3rd Rock from the Sun.
