Ted | Preview (Sky Max)

Following the huge success of the global hit film franchise, Ted is taking over the small screen in a seven-episode prequel series. It's 1993, and Ted the bear’s (Seth MacFarlane) moment of fame has passed.



He’s now living back home in Framingham, Massachusetts with his best friend, 16-year-old John Bennett (Max Burkholder), along with John’s parents, Matty and Susan (Scott Grimes and Alanna Ubach) and cousin Blaire (Giorgia Whigham). Ted may be a lousy influence on John, but at the end of the day, he’s a loyal pal who’s always willing to go out on a limb for friendship.



In the opening episodes, Ted's latest stunt lands him in trouble and he’s made to go to school with John. Ted immediately decides to get expelled, leading him and John to purchase drugs from an unlikely source.


Seth MacFarlane, Paul Corrigan and Brad Walsh said: "Each generation develops its own unique artistic style, its own way of seeing the world. In the twenties, it was the subversive musical phrasings of jazz...




"In the fifties, it was the bold brushwork of the abstract expressionists. Our generation’s unique art is streaming content based on previously successful intellectual property. In that proud tradition, we humbly give you Ted...



"Our series is a prequel to the Ted movies. It takes place in the nineties but is based on the timeless truth that being sixteen sucks. The only thing that makes it tolerable is going through it with a friend, even if that friend is a has-been magical teddy bear with a foul mouth and a proclivity for drug use...


"The three of us were teenagers in the nineties and grew up in and around Boston, where the show takes place, so many of these stories are personal for us. We were able to put the characters through some of the same indignities and milestones we experienced back then. Also, we made stuff up (it’s a lot of pages to fill and real life is mostly boring)."



Ted begins Friday 9th February at 9pm on Sky Max.
