TED – The TV prequel to hit film franchise TED –coming to Sky Max early next year

After the tremendous success of the globally acclaimed film franchise "Ted," Sky is set to bring the beloved bear to the small screen in a 7-episode prequel series. Exclusively available in the UK and Ireland on Sky Max, the series is scheduled to debut early next year.

Set in 1993, the series follows Ted the bear, voiced by Seth MacFarlane, as he navigates life after his moment of fame has passed. Returning to his roots in Framingham, Massachusetts, Ted resides with his best friend, 16-year-old John Bennett (Max Burkholder), alongside John's parents, Matty and Susan (Scott Grimes and Alanna Ubach), and cousin Blaire (Giorgia Whigham). While Ted may not be the best influence on John, he remains a steadfast companion, always ready to take risks for the sake of friendship.

A note from Seth MacFarlane, Paul Corrigan and Brad Walsh:

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).
