Two new shows joined the Apple TV + list on Friday. These are the comedy Ted Lasso and the award-winning documentary Boys State.
‘Ted Lasso’ on Apple TV +
Ted Lasso, played by Jason Sudeikis, is an American football coach. He comes to England to coach the AFC Richmond football team, although he has no experience. Hannah Waddingham and Juno Temple co-starred in the series. I am delighted to see a little levity in a rather serious program of shows.
Welcome to ‘Boys State’
Boys State is quite different. It’s a documentary that shows what happens when 1,100 boys from all over Texas come together to form a representative democracy from the ground up. The film, directed by Jess Morris and Amanda Mcbaine, has Laurene Powell-Jobs, as executive producer. He received the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance.
