Ted Lasso is alive and well and has signed on for a new gig — at Apple.
Jason Sudeikis is reviving his American football coach for a straight-to-series comedy for the iPhone maker.
Co-created, co-written and executive produced by the Saturday Night Live alum and Bill Lawrence, Ted Lasso will see Sudeikis step back into his role as the titular all-American football coach who is hired to manage an English football club — despite having no soccer coaching experience at all.
The character was first created in 2013 as part of promotional videos for NBC Sports. (Watch one of those, below.)
Will soon be out on Apple TV with Stephen MANAS as Richard MONTLAUR.
