Jeff and Colleen review Apple TV Plus’ original show, Ted Lasso.
Ted Lasso is an American sports comedy television series developed by Bill Lawrence, Jason Sudeikis, Joe Kelly and Brendan Hunt, based on a character of the same name that Sudeikis first portrayed in a series of promos for NBC Sports‘ coverage of the Premier League. The series premiered on Apple TV+ on August 14, 2020 and was renewed for a second season five days after its premiere. (wikipedia)
- Jason Sudeikis as Ted Lasso, an American football coach from Kansas who is hired to coach a soccer (football) team. A folksy American, he is seen as a rube but is smarter than he looks. He loves to coach and cares more about people than wins.
- Hannah Waddingham as Rebecca Welton, the new owner of AFC Richmond as a result of her divorce. She wants to ruin the team as it was the only thing her ex-husband loved.
- Brendan Hunt as Coach Beard, Lasso’s longtime taciturn assistant and friend.
- Brett Goldstein as Roy Kent, an aging, often angry star who won a title years ago.
- Phil Dunster as Jamie Tartt, a young up-and-coming star. Egotistical, he is a foil for the team spirit Ted is trying to instill at Richmond.
