Apple TV+ award-winning comedy series “Ted Lasso” has bagged an Emmy again. At the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards, the show won an award for Outstanding Comedy Series for its first and second seasons and created history by becoming the eighth series in the genre to do so in 74 years of Emmy history.
Directed and led by Jason Sudeikis, the series showcases how an inexperienced American football coach transforms a British soccer team with his optimism, determination, and biscuits. That message of hope and teamwork has resonated with the global audience.
Apple’s “Ted Lasso” now joins the ranks of only seven other comedy series in history that have landed Outstanding Comedy Series wins in their first two years: “Modern Family,” “30 Rock,” “Frasier,” “The Golden Girls,” “Cheers,” “All in the Family” and “The Phil Silvers Show.”
