Jason Sudeikis is Back as NBC Sports' Misplaced 'Football' Coach Lasso
Brooklyn Broathers Promotes The Networks' Premier League Coverage
Aug 08, 2014
Last year, agency Brooklyn Brothers brought us the first installment of Coach Ted Lasso's misadventures. Funnyman Jason Sudeikis played an American coach who missed the memo on "football" being an entirely different sport in most of the world-- namely soccer. HIlarity ensued as he tried to coach an English football club.
NBC Sports' favorite misfit returns, teenie tiny shorts in tow, to promote a new premier league season starting August 16. Mr. Lasso, now former coach of Tottenham FC, extends his 15 minutes of shame by becoming a soccer pundit. When things inevitably go awry for the bumbling character, he returns to the U.S. with peculiar trinkets and knowledge gained dunring his U.K. stay.
