THE NEW APPLE TV+ SERIES ‘TED LASSO’ IS A JOY! (created by Boom Chicago alumni)
Seth Meyers and Jason Sudeikis talk about their time in Amsterdam at Boom Chicago and the wonderful new Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso. Three Boom Chicago alums (Jason, Brendan Hunt and Joe Kelly) developed their love for football in Amsterdam and created the Coach Ted Lasso character in the early 2000s. After making two viral videos for NBC sports to promote the premier League coming to US television, years later, the series was picked up by Apple TV+. The wonderful, funny and sweet show, created, written, acted and directed by the Boom trio, dropped the first three episodes this week. Number one is good, two is better and three is best of all. We can’t wait for the final seven. New episodes premiere every Friday. Rotten Tomatoes gives the series an 83% from critics with audiences rating the show an incredible 97% fresh!
