Will ‘Atlanta’s’ Return Knock ‘Ted Lasso’ Out of the Emmys Winners’ Circle?
Jennifer Maas TV Business WriterPlenty of newbies will be breaking into the comedy category this Emmys season, but two leading rivals for the title will be actual competitors for the first time: “Atlanta” and “Ted Lasso.”As wildly different series that fall into the same genre in the awards competition, their performances in this race will likely lead to a discussion about the industry’s relationship with feel-good TV.“Those shows are going to have interesting moments, both with Donald Glover having been out of the spotlight for a minute, intentionally, taking a detour with a music career that was more successful than I think a lot of people expected,” a Hollywood industry insider told Variety, “while there’s been probably more publicity than I think Apple would like on the fact that the upcoming third season is likely the last season of ‘Ted Lasso.’” The Jason Sudeikis-led Apple TV+ comedy is the reigning champ and has never aired in an “Atlanta”-less world, while Donald Glover’s show is a twice-nominated FX series that has lost twice, first to HBO’s “Veep” in Season 1 and then to Prime Video’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” in Season 2.And just as “Ted Lasso” has been a topic of joyful conversation continuously for almost two years, the very idea of when “Atlanta’s” Europe-set Season 3 would finally premiere — following a four-year wait since Season 2 — has also been a much-discussed event.“I’d anticipate that if ‘Atlanta’ was gone for so long and came back as the exact same thing, it probably would have less of a chance,” another industry insider says.

Ted Lasso actress Annette Badland has provided an insight into what it’s like working with the show's creator Jason Sudeikis, explaining that the star always “has a very clear idea of what he wants” in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk. Jason and his ex-partner Olivia Wilde’s names made headlines today after the actress was unexpectedly handed custody documents from the father of her two children whilst speaking on stage at CinemaCon.Annette plays Mae, the no-nonsense owner of The Crown & Anchor pub in Richmond upon Thames in both seasons of the hit show Ted Lasso.The series was first conceptualised by Jason and Brendan Hunt, 50, who plays Coach Beard on the show.When asked about how Jason compared to his imaginary counterpart, Ted, Annette gave an interesting insight into what it was like working with the comedic actor.“Well, he doesn’t usually have a moustache!” she began with a laugh.“I just think he’s amazing because he’s also conceived of it, he’s taken the lead role, he’s producing…”Annette went on to explain that Jason often had a lot of input into the creative process behind the show.“He doesn’t take a directorial role but when you’re working with him he goes, ‘Could we try it that way?’ Or, ‘Ooh I’ve had an idea.’ Or, ‘Should we improvise that?’” she shared.Gushing about the former SNL cast member, Annette continued: “He’s very generous.
Olivia Wilde served custody papers by Jason Sudeikis at CinemaCon
Don’t Worry Darling at CinemaCon when she was handed a brown envelope.A person approached the stage at Caesars Palace from the seats and slid an envelope marked “personal and confidential” across the front of the stage to her.“This is for me?” Wilde asked. She then opened it, according to Deadline, to find custody documents related to her two children with Sudeikis, the comedian and star of Ted Lasso.A source for Sudeikis, told Variety: “Papers were drawn up to establish jurisdiction relating to the children of Ms Wilde and Mr Sudeikis.“Mr Sudeikis had no prior knowledge of the time or place that the envelope would have been delivered as this would solely be up to the process service company involved, and he would never condone her being served in such an inappropriate manner.”The pair split up in late 2020 after nearly 10 years together.Following the incident Mitch Neuhauser, CinemaCon’s managing director, said: “We have never in the history of the convention had an incident where a delegate has approached the stage who was not authorised to be there.“In light of this incident, we are re-evaluating our security procedures to ensure the safety of all our attendees.”Wilde has since started a relationship with Harry Styles who stars in Don’t Worry Darling alongside Florence Pugh.She recently shared a black-and-white photo of Styles sat in an old sports car, and praised him for his “humility and grace” during filming for the movie.Wilde also recently said Don’t Worry Darling is the equivalent of “The Feminine Mystique on acid”, and was inspired by psychosexual thrillers like Fatal Attraction and Indecent Proposal.
