The salary of Jason Sudeikis for each episode of Ted Lasso has been revealed.
The comedic series, which was created by Sudeikis, Brendan Hunt, Bill Lawrence, and Joe Kelly, launched on Apple TV+ last summer and became an unexpected runaway hit. Viewers’ gushing praise resulted in long-term interaction from both fans and critics.
Apple TV+ renewed the show for a second season only five days after it premiered, and it is now showing on the streaming platform.
Ted Lasso received not only a warm welcome from fans but also a slew of record-breaking accolades upon its release. The first season was recently nominated for 20 Emmys, making it the most nominated freshman comedy of all time. Ted Lasso quickly rose to the top of Apple TV+’s most-watched shows list. Likely, a third season of the show has already been announced.
The show follows Ted Lasso (Sudeikis), an American football coach, as he arrives in the UK for the first time to coach an English Premier League team. The series in particular is an extension of a fictional character Sudeikis first introduced in many NBC Sports promos released in 2013. The titular protagonist in Ted Lasso tries to gain the trust of AFC Richmond, a struggling soccer team disinterested in the antics of an American football coach. Not only does Lasso need to work hard to earn the respect of his players, but he also needs to make friends with AFC Richmond’s austere new owner, Rebecca Welton (Hannah Waddingham).
Many award-winning television leads, including Jason Sudeikis, had their episodic salary revealed by Variety. According to online reports, the Ted Lasso star got almost $400,000 every episode in season one.
Streaming platforms like Apple TV+ have wooed a number of well-known actors to star in large-scale television productions. Jason Sudeikis, whose salary got revealed, joined the production as a heavyweight in the industry as one of the co-creators and executive producers of Ted Lasso.
Ted Lasso debuted online as a little newcomer, but its well-crafted, touching story quickly gained a loyal and ardent following. The series has been a fan favourite among a diverse audience over time. Its enduring message of empathy and compassion seems to have struck a chord with many, especially during this period of political and cultural upheaval.
Sudeikis’ Ted Lasso provides a glimmer of hope in a sea of gritty, nihilistic dramas.
