Write On: A Screenwriting Podcast


Aug 28, 2021

Brendan Hunt, who plays Coach Beard on the hit show Ted Lasso, talked to Write On about writing the second season of the series along with his co-creators Jason Sudeikis, Bill Lawrence, and Joe Kelly: "I think we were very fortunate that we had our first season under our belt pre-lockdown because part of why we were still able to do, hopefully, a half-decent job on Season 2 was that we had the whole crew back plus one, so we knew each other, and we had a sense of each other… it was not preferable, but we made it work."

He goes on to describe what he thinks is one of the hardest things to do as a writer: believing in yourself. "If you do the part where you believe in yourself, which is theoretically the harder part, then believe not just that you can do the big picture thing… but that you can do these hurdles. If every schmuck in town has a screenplay, then you can at least be one of the schmucks."
