Two Apple TV+ series, “Trying” and “Ted Lasso” have earned nominations at the Edinburgh TV Awards. The former is nominated as Best Comedy Series; the latter as Best International Drama. (Interesting. I thought “Ted Lasso” could also be nominated in the comedy category.) Winners will be announced on October 21.
Here’s how “Trying” is described: Here’s how the second season of the series is described: In the eight-episode second season of “Trying,” Nikki (BAFTA nominee Esther Smith) and Jason (SAG nominee Rafe Spall) are continuing to navigate the adoption process. Having been approved by the adoption panel, they now find that matching with a child is not as straightforward as they had hoped. It seems like children are being snapped up by other couples while somehow they’re being left behind. Helped by their eccentric social worker Penny (Imelda Staunton), they are determined to do everything they can. When Nikki meets a little girl called Princess at an adoption event, she knows instantly that this is the child for them. But there are obstacles to Nikki’s plan that may prove insurmountable.
About ‘Ted Lasso’
Here’s how ‘Ted Lasso” is described: “Ted Lasso” stars Sudeikis as Ted Lasso, a small-time American college football coach hired to coach a Premier League team despite having no experience coaching the English game. Sudeikis also serves as executive producer on the show and is supported by an Emmy nominated ensemble including Hannah Waddingham, Brett Goldstein, Juno Temple, Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift and Nick Mohammed.
