A few years ago, NBC started broadcasting premier league games. As promotion, they ran a series of ads about an American football coach named Ted Lasso who had for some reason been hired to manage Tottenham. Pretty funny fish-out-of-water stuff. Fine.
Now Apple TV has turned this into a series. It seems like an insane idea for a show, but I watched the first few and it actually seems… really good? It’s funny, and somehow earnest and endearing without being sappy.
Anyway, the trailer is here, and the first few episodes are up on Apple TV+.
