Ted Lasso

A feel-good football comedy.

Ted Lasso is an American college football coach. So, naturally he’d be great at coaching an English football team, right? Not exactly, but gosh darn it if Ted’s optimism and folksy charm aren’t just what AFC Richmond needs, even if the team’s owner did only hire him in an attempt to get revenge on the previous owner, her ex.

Jason Sudeikis stars as Ted, a character he actually first played in a series of commercials for NBC Sports’ coverage of the Premier League. The Apple TV+ show greatly expands on those humble beginnings, however, and Ted Lasso has gone on to be one of the streaming service’s biggest hits.
