Ted Lasso fans will clearly remember how the comedy show lightened things up and made them laugh last year when the pandemic began. The Apple TV comedy series tells the story of Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis), an American soccer coach from Kansas. After he led the Wichita State Shockers to a Division II National Collegiate Athletic Association championship, he gets a new job. Meanwhile, Lasso was hired to manage AFC Richmond, which he does to hilarious effect.

Sudeikis himself won Best Actor in a Comedy Series at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards, the SAG Awards and the Golden Globes.
