Ted Lasso: What’s the big deal about Emmy-winning football comedy?

Perhaps the most important thing to know about Ted Lasso is you don’t need to like football to enjoy it. After all, the show’s titular character barely understands the rules himself. But that doesn’t stop the well-intentioned American coach from attempting to turn around the fortunes of a fictional Premiership team. His rather unusual, kill-them-with-kindness approach and unconventional coaching style is mocked at first, before he gradually starts to win over the bad-tempered and arrogant players.

The Apple TV comedy became a word-of-mouth hit in the months following its launch last August, and on Sunday it was rewarded with several of the major prizes at the Emmy Awards. The show took home best comedy series, as well as acting prizes for Jason Sudeikis, Hannah Waddingham and Brett Goldstein. That level of recognition is a reflection of the show’s broad appeal and how much it connected with audiences in a year filled with worry and uncertainty amid lockdowns around the world. Here’s everything you need to know about the now Emmy-winning comedy series.
