Surprise Famous Director
When looking at the credits for Ted Lasso, you may be surprised to find one unexpected name. Actor Zach Braff ended up directing two episodes of the show. This interesting facet was partly executed by chance — though also done due to his preexisting ties to those involved with developing the show.
Braff happened to be in the U.K. at the time of shooting. He was asked if he wanted to come in and direct a few of the episodes. While he didn’t actually appear in the series, he had a longstanding relationship with Ted Lasso developer/co-creator Bill Lawrence. Braff starred on Scrubs — a show Lawrence had also created.
