Jason Sudeikis is an actor who has been seen in many comedy movies up in Hollywood, such as Horrible Bosses and We're The Millers. However, when the actor decided to enter the OTT scene, he has clearly picked something that is interesting from the word go. Yes, we are talking about Ted Lasso, the upcoming original series from Apple TV which drops on the 14th of this month.
Ted Lasso is an extension of the character that Sudeikis portrayed in a series of promos for NBC's coverage of the Premier League. Ted comes in as a small time football coach, who is hired to coach a professional soccer team. The catch here is that, Ted has no prior experience in coaching soccer and has to learn the game to the limit before he can actually prove himself as a coach.
The production value of the series is what impresses the most, with lots of energy and excitement coming in from all sides, and not just the sporting scenes. The cast seems to be packed with talented actors, and there's a good amount of comedy too which is sure to make this a popular series if it indeed manages to live up the expectations that the trailer has created. Let's see how it goes!
