To promote NBC Sports' coverage of the Premier League beginning on August 17th, The Brooklyn Brothers tapped Jason Sudeikis to play (American) football coach Ted Lasso, who turns out to be way out of his element when he becomes the new (U.K.) football coach for Premier League club Tottenham Hotspurs. A pair of films directed by Moxie Pictures' Martin Granger shows Lasso flubbing his way through practice, press conference and locker room pep talks.

NBC is the first U.S. network to bring the entire Premier League season to U.S. viewers.
