Apple just dropped a Ted Lasso trailer that gives the world its first glimpse of Jason Sudeikis reviving his clueless coach character for Apple TV+.

Sudeikis first played Lasso in a hilarious 2013 ad for Premier League soccer games on NBC Sports. With this Apple Original, he will extend the gag to series length, portraying a hapless, small-town college football coach hired by a U.K. soccer team.

Check out the amusing trailer below.

Sudeikis famously played the character of Kurt Buckman in Horrible Bosses. He has also played presidential candidate Joe Biden on Saturday Night Live, and appeared in The Mandalorian.

Ted Lasso on Apple TV+

Apple commissioned Ted Lasso in October 2019. The series is co-created by Bill Lawrence, creator of Scrubs and co-creator of Cougar Town and Spin City.

The series will debut on Apple TV+ on August 14. It will join Mythic Quest, Central Park and Trying as Apple’s first steps into comedy.

A subscription to Apple TV+ costs $4.99 a month. If you buy a new Mac, iPhone, Apple TV or iPad, you get a free year of the streaming video service thrown in.
