Joseph Gordon-Levitt is coming to the small screen. The popular actor's ("Inception") new television show, "HitRecord on TV," will have its debut this Saturday.

Gordon-Levitt is the host of the show, and his production company, HitRecord, produced it. 

"The Number 1," the first episode of Levitt's latest endeavor, is currently viewable online (and at the end of this post).

Old school TV watchers, "The Number 1" airs this Saturday at 10 p.m., Eastern/7 p.m., Pacific time

The new original TV series features half-hour variety shows. Every episode explores a different theme.

The themes--including the road, outsiders, snow, Halloween and childhood, as Levitt said in a promo video--reflect, perhaps, the 32-year-old Gordon-Levitt's interests.

User-submitted content that has been uploaded onto hitrecord.org, the website of Levitt's production company, will comprise the show. Launched by Levitt and his late brother, Dan, in 2005, HitRecord outsources the making of its content to everyone, collecting short films, music, photography and more.

Meanwhile, features that allow users users to tinker--or, "remix"--each other’s work distinguishes the website from similar ventures.

“This is not a joke, this is not a marketing gimmick. This is an invitation,” Levitt recently said of the website, which shares profits with the artists who've submitted.

On Saturday, a second, all-new episode will immediately follow "The Number 1."

Pivot TV, a new cable channel aimed at millenials, is airing the series.
