‘Ted’: Peacock Reveals Premiere Date, Trailer For Event Series From Seth MacFarlane

Peacock is finally ready to show the world Ted, its event series from Seth MacFarlane.

All seven episodes of Ted, including a supersized premiere, will debut Jan. 11, 2024 on the streamer. The event series serves as a prequel to the film franchise and will take fans on a “hilarious R-rated nostalgic journey back to the 90s,” according to Peacock.

The fresh cast of characters include Max Burkholder (Parenthood), Alanna Ubach (Euphoria), Scott Grimes (The Orville) and Giorgia Whigham (13 Reasons Why) while MacFarlane will continue to voice Ted.

Peacock first made the straight-to-series order for Ted in 2021.

Here’s the logline: “It’s 1993, and Ted the bear’s moment of fame has passed. He’s now living back home in Framingham, Massachusetts with his best friend, 16-year-old John Bennett (Burkholder), along with John’s parents, Matty and Susan (Grimes and Ubach) and cousin Blaire (Whigham). Ted may be a lousy influence on John, but at the end of the day, he’s a loyal pal who’s always willing to go out on a limb for friendship.”

The series is EPed by MarFarlane, Paul Corrigan and Brad Walsh, who released the following statement: “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,” the statement continued. “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).”

Other EPs on the event series are Erica Huggins, Alana Kleinman, Jason Clark, Aimee Carlson (Fuzzy Door Productions). It’s from UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, Fuzzy Door and MRC.
