At the beginning of November, the streaming video platform Apple TV + was released in our country. Accustomed to the great offer of titles that the great competitors in this sector offer us, the truth is that the catalog that Apple presented at the beginning seemed ridiculous to me. I thought it would be a failure of the company.
More than six months have passed, and the truth is that Apple has taken very seriously to enhance its video platform. Many series have been released, all of high quality, and every day we have news about new signed contracts and projects to produce much more content, with top-notch directors and actors. I no longer think it will be a failure. Of course, the company is going to lay a pasture.
Apple has just bought the rights to produce a new series for its Apple TV + platform. It will be a comedy that will premiere in August, with a famous American actor. Jason Sudeikis starring in the well-known character of «Ted Lasso» which he currently plays on NBC Sports.
The new comedy series “Ted Lasso” will focus on the character of the same name, played by Sudeikis. The character is the same one who uses the NBC Sports in some of their commercials. The series will be based on the adventures of the fictional coach Lasso.
Will narrate the stories of the college football coach in Kansas, who one day left his club to go train a professional soccer team in England, despite not having experience coaching a sport of the same name but totally different.
Sodeikis will reprise her role as Lasso, as well as executive producing the show alongside Bill Lawrence through Doozer Productions, with partnerships with Warner Bros. Jeff Ingold, also from Doozer, will also be an executive producer, with Lisa Katzer as co-executive producer.
Obviously Apple has reached an agreement with NBC Esports to develop a new series from the characters created by the american sports network.
