Foul-mouthed teddy bear Ted a hit for Sky Max


Foul-mouthed teddy bear Ted a hit for Sky Max

The prequel series has proved a hit with UK audiences…

Following the huge success of the global hit film franchise, Ted, the loveable, foul-mouthed teddy bear returned in 2024 to take over the small screen in a seven-episode prequel series. From Emmy-winning creator Seth MacFarlane, Ted – which debuted on Sky Max earlier this year – has secured the biggest US comedy launch audience on Sky, since records began in 2002. The welcome return of Ted has been reflected in viewing figures with the opening episode on Sky in the UK hitting just over 1.36 million views in the 28 days following transmission.

In this prequel series to the Ted films, 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.

“For UK fans who haven’t yet had a chance to check out Ted, all episodes are available to watch on Sky Max and streaming service NOW.”Sky

Ted is co-produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, Fuzzy Door and MRC. The prequel series is based on the hit Universal Pictures and MRC’s Ted.
