Ted Lasso

Brett Goldstein has emerged as one of Hollywood’s most sought-after multihyphenates. He is the co-executive producer, writer & star of the Apple TV+ comedy series, “Ted Lasso," the Peabody-winning most-nominated freshman comedy in Emmy history. His scene-stealing performance as the brash yet lovable Roy Kent has earned him a 2021 Primetime Emmy Award, 2021 HCA Award & nominations for the 2022 Critics Choice, Golden Globe and SAG Awards, the latter for which he was the only “supporting” actor to be nominated in a heavily dominated leading category. He additionally received a 2022 WGA Award nomination for "Ted Lasso," having scored two wins the year prior. Further to inking an overall development deal with Warner Bros. TV, Goldstein is the creator/executive producer of the upcoming comedy series “Shrinking” for AppleTV+ alongside Jason Segel and Bill Lawrence. This follows the success of his critically acclaimed AMC limited anthology series, “Soulmates”, which he created/executive produced with Will Bridges. He also hosts the iHeartRadio award nominated, Films To Be Buried With, a candid conversation podcast with special guests who discuss the films that have shaped them.
