VIFF Creator Talk: Bill Lawrence Co-Creator, Ted Lasso

Co/creator of Scrubs, Cougar Town and Spin City, Bill Lawrence will be online for a VIFF Creator Talk to chat about his latest big-hearted comedy series, Ted Lasso!
The Apple TV+ series, starring and co-created by Jason Sudeikis, is about an American football coach who’s recruited to manage an English soccer team despite having no experience (or even a clear concept of the sport).
Join us for ‘biscuits with the boss’ as Bill Lawrence takes us inside the writers’ room of this series that shows conventional sitcom ideas a red card, brings real depth to a game ensemble cast and proves that comedy and sincerity can be potent strike partners.

Nov. 17, 5pm PST on VIFF Connect.

Stream 6 Pack of BC Shorts | VIFF Online

Not only do these shorts showcase the talent of filmmakers who call this city home, they also take us into areas of the city, suburbs and province that currently lay beyond our reach. Whether it’s a retelling of a Langley schoolyard scuffle, a journey to an industrial ghost town, or a ride along with Vancouver taxi drivers, these are films – and filmmakers – deserving of discovery.
