In yU+co’s main titles for Apple TV+ series, Ted Lasso, the American football coach who knows nothing about the sport he’s come to coach in England, has an immediate effect, turning every stadium seat he touches into a clean red from graffitied blue.
The Hollywood-based main-titles maestro used existing but unused footage to create the sequence, which the team produced from their respective homes during this time of social distancing. Mumford & Sons’ Marcus Mumford and Tom Howe composed the music for both the opening sequence and the series.
Jason Sudeikis stars as Ted Lasso in this Apple TV+ series, created out of digital shorts originally produced by NBC Sports, that premiered August 14. On Wednesday, the streamer renewed the show for a second season.
